Are you having a tough time letting go of someone or something in your life? Would you like to find healthier ways of relating to people? Is there a part of you that is struggling to move on after the ending of something significant in your life?
We’ve all been guilty of holding onto things much longer than necessary. No matter what your friends and family told you at the time, nothing could convince you to let go. You were incapable of envisioning your life differently. If you have a tough time liberating yourself from things, people, places and memories, know that what you’re going through isn’t easy.
