Prompt: Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why? (Author: Alice Bradley)
I’m actually in a multi-year letting go process of some soured relationships from the past. It’s proving more difficult than I thought. I don’t think about this person for weeks or maybe months at a time, and yet when I do all of the previous mindsets come back. I guess the brain is good at that… freezing mindsets related to relationships and then unfreezing them when necessary. It’s why I can visit a friend I haven’t seen in 10 years and feel like nothing has changed. And so maybe that bodes poorly for my ability to “heal” or even to forgive and forget regardless of the amount of time that passes.
And yet, I do feel like I’m letting go on some nano-scale. Like maybe how the body replaces one cell at a time until the whole body is new cells every 7 years. Nothing faster or more productive than that, though.
