When pushing weights, or carrying irrigation pipe, it is so much easier to let go.
When it comes to desires, emotions, and pride it is the exact opposite. It is so much harder to let go.
Letting go is easy when it is physical.
Letting go is almost impossible at first when it is emotional.
Knowing when to let go and when to hold on doesn’t always depend on us and our feelings. Often, it is based on the circumstances around us and the actions of others.
When it is tangible and heavy, holding on is hard.
When it is inside of us and untouchable, that is when holding on is the easy way out.
Usually, when we don’t want to let go, that is when we know we need to. Letting go is when the pain truly becomes real.
