Maybe this is the year you finally let go . . . let go of the past

Are you feeling depressed and tired?  Maybe you haven't noticed, but you may be carrying a lot of old worn out baggage around these days - mostly around your heart. 

We wear many hats during the course of a lifetime - husband, wife, mother, father, child, sibling, friend, lover, teacher, student, etc.  Some of these roles are assumed an entire lifetime - others wind up being temporary.  Unfortunately, most of us refuse to let go of those hats that were not meant to be worn forever.  Perhaps it is too painful to let go . . . so we keep the memory alive in our minds and our hearts which keeps the pain alive and  perpetuating.  It's a vicious cycle.

Is there a role you used to play for others - or someone in particular?  Are you reluctant to give up wearing the 'hat' that symbolized this role even though your efforts are no longer appreciated?  If you have suffered at the hands of another's indifference, selfishness,  betrayal, jealousy . . . whatever . . . it's time to let go of this person/s mentally and emotionally.  When someone has really hurt you . . . a spouse, a child, a parent, a friend, a lover - anyone . . . you must let go.   There isn't anything more detrimental to the spirit than loving someone who no longer loves you or whom you can  trust.   

You may be holding on because you find it impossible to forgive this person/s and release the anger you feel towards them even though you intellectually know that this is the best thing for you to do.  

If you really need and want revenge -  learn to detach.  Be happy, successful, optimistic, and do not let this person/s hurt you any longer.  This is true revenge.  Make this the year you let go of  those who are not a supportive and caring influence in your life.   Chase them out of your heart and memory to allow  other people who can really care and love you into your life.
