Help! I Need to Let Go.

I tend to feel guilty about everything. It definitely runs in the family, and thus is probably a learned trait.

I am ready to make some fairly significant changes in my life and yet I feel stuck because I worry about how these changes will impact other people. I care about the people with whom I interact on a regular basis and I realize that if I am going to make a drastic change in my life, they too will experience change that they may or may not be ready for. Basically, I guess I am worried that pursuing my passions will cause others to experience anxiety and discomfort. I am also concerned that I am not keeping up my end of a deal made many months ago and have doubts that if I take a chance I will fail.

I am aware that the anxiety, stress, and guilt I am feeling may not be reasonable…they are likely my Ego interfering with my natural flow. In spite of this awareness I continue to struggle with taking the next step towards change. What am I so afraid of and why do I chose to hold onto this guilt? I could use some input from my WordPress family…

How do you let go of something when your heart knows it’s time to move on, but your mind tells you that you should hold on?



Note to Self:

Seriously, K give it up!

  1. Kay our dear and loved ones stay in our heart and I feel we should continue with our passion. If our loved ones truly love us then they will support us in achieving our dreams.
    Follow your dreams
    Hope this helps 🙂

  2. Funny. I’ve been working on a post about letting go and forgiveness. it’s not easy for me either. if you’re not busy weighing yourself up with anger and resentment, then you’re worried about the other person.

    I’m not sure what you’re letting go of or who. But if it’s something you need to do, remember this: you cannot abandon an adult.

    Letting go so you can take care of yourself isn’t an act of abandonment, so don’t feel guilty.

    • S.M.Stray – Great advice. In this case it’s actually a job…but as I let go of this I realize there’s a lot of other things I’m holding onto that no longer match my vibration. I can’t understand why letting go is still hard, even when a situation is no longer serving me spiritually.

      Good luck with your post. I’d love to see it when you’re done! Thanks for commenting!

  3. Just do it, my dear. I didn’t wanna get out of the company I created along with my 2 best friends and my mind stopped me for TWO YEARS! It could have been much more less if I would have listened to my gut, who always knew what to do. Now that I took the leap, I cannot tell you how happy I am. Maybe those two years are what I needed in order to grow faster, or God knows what, but I can tell you that the biggest lesson I learned is follow your intuition, you always know what to do. Stop worrying about what others may think, or how they may feel… both of those things aren’t your responsibility, remember that.

    Love you always, dear!

    • I DID it! I am taking the separation slow, but at least I told them about it and I feel so liberated and wonderful…now I just gotta plan what’s next!!! Thanks for the advice and support!
