WAKEUPGIRL

Letting go is one of the hardest things we face. I remember my coach telling me, "Michelle, I could give you some advice, but I can see that you're just not disgusted enough to take action anyway". Sometimes, you just have to get downright disgusted with a situation before you are moved to action. Too often, we get so comfortable with "discomfort", mediocrity, or even chaos and confusion, that we associate letting it go with feelings of pain, uncertainty, loneliness and most of all - fear! This further paralyzes us from moving on. Whether letting go of a relationship, job, business partnership or a few extra pounds, for me it always begins with an unsettling restlessness, elevating to total disgust and finally on to quick and decisive action that seemed so obvious and yet it took me this many months or years to act? One question I ask myself when I am feeling entangled is, “What am I truly fighting for here?” This question always seems to help me put things in proper perspective. After my break up, I still made earnest attempts to preserve and salvage our friendship. I finally came to the point where I had to ask myself, "How long are you going to fight for something that isn't healthy for you?" Also, you may want to consider that most of us run HOT or COLD in relationships! Either we are completely IN for a person, or we must be totally OUT! Most of us struggle pretending that the WARM zone is okay, when it's really not. I had to go totally COLD for Mr. Ex, before I could ever, ever consider warming up to a healthy friendship with him. Give yourself the gift of clarity - Hot or Cold - Choose
