We never get over our emotional baggage; but we can “let it go.”
Letting Go of Emotional Baggage: Getting to Acceptancey
“I’m ready to let go of my emotional baggage, but I don’t know how.”
Easier said than done, but yes, there are steps you can take that will lead to the “letting go.”
First, let’s look at what “letting go” means.
What can you expect?
Often people have the notion that if they really work through their baggage, express their feelings and go to therapy that they will be free of the painful memories they have stored so long. This is not exactly the case. You never forget or get over your history.
“Letting go” is a shift in your physical, cognitive and emotional responses to the memories. It means you are able to think about it without your heart pounding or your blood pressure shooting up. It means you have shifted your mindset from one seeing yourself as a victim of your circumstance to one seeing yourself as a resilient person who came through difficulties and is stronger for it.
