People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.
I saw this quote the other day and it felt almost like something I could have written or said myself. I think I do have a hard time of letting go of something, even if it brings some kind of pain, for fear of what is not known.
When I encounter this kind of situation, sometimes I try to remind myself that “you have to let go to get big” or “something so much greater is just waiting.” Let’s be honest, sometimes that either feels like untrue crap or very difficult and uncertain.
Still, I think this is a good reminder that I’m not alone in dealing with this – whether it’s a suffering situation at work, a relationship or another part of life.
