Giving Up the Past


Do not be mistaken; when we emotionally heal ourselves, we necessarily must give up the past including people and unhealthy dynamics.  Many may be under the impression that everything can remain the same, but I really am getting better.  This is simply not the case from my personal experience.

For example, if we are recovering from substance abuse, we cannot continue our friendships with our drinking and drug buddies.  We cannot continue to go to bars and continue to party.  This simply cannot work, and it is the delusion of our egos or its refusal to let go.

In my personal experience, I realized that I was addicted to men who abused and mistreated me.  I had become comfortable and habituated to a life of dysfunction, drama, and chaos.  These men cheated on me, physically or sexually abused me, and regularly controlled me and denigrated me. They even told me how to dress, how to put on my makeup, and how to wear my hair. Seriously?!?

These people are still dwelling within their own dysfunction and abuse, but I have decided to give them up along with these destructive and unhealthy dynamics.  When we emotionally heal ourselves, we necessarily must change our physical conditions as well. Truthly, this is the whole purpose of emotional healing that is to rid the unhealthy, destructive, and dysfunctional dynamics and relationships in our lives.

This is what I have learned, and thus, the reason for my departure from my current life here.  I cannot remain in the same place with the same people, and expect my life to be different.  When we heal ourselves, we begin to see our existence very differently.  What we tolerated earlier, we will no longer tolerate or accept now.

The Law of Attraction dictates that as we heal ourselves, we will feel better and good about ourselves and attract healthier and more healed people into our lives.  We attract what we are, not what we want.  I will meet new people, new circumstances, and new dynamics that are healthier and more productive for my life.  I will no longer dwell in my sadness, longing, and loss.

I have chosen to be happy now.  It is a choice and my pathetic past is no longer acceptable or tolerated.  May you choose happiness, and attract the life you deserve.  (Copyright 2016 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)
