It is very late, I have been sewing all day and here I am past midnight and almost too tired to share much tonight. I found this quote the other day and love it! So true, everyone does come with baggage, it is called life and experiences. The trick is to find the right people who will love you enough to not only help you unpack, but share the load while you do! Thanks for doing that for me. Good night dear friends!
I found this article about Emotional Baggage, interesting!
At some point in your life, you have had to deal with emotional hurt or tragedy. It doesn't matter who you are, how rich you are, the color of your skin, or the geographical area that you live in. At some point, we all get hurt, in the emotional sense. When this happens, an imaginary suitcase opens in our minds - or possibly in our hearts - and we start mentally packing that hurt into that suitcase.
As we age, each time we are hurt, we add more to that suitcase, and may even need additional luggage as time moves along. Overtime, that baggage can get very heavy, and it can actually prevent us from really getting the most out of our future relationships, as well as life in general. So, at some point, you should really ask yourself if your past is actually determining your future.
To get the most out of your life, and your relationships, start by mentally opening that suitcase and unpacking it. Examine each hurt, and instead of looking at all of the negatives associated with it, instead try to see how something positive came out of it. For example, if you were hurt in your last relationship, but you are now with a wonderful new person, you should realize that if the previous relationship had not ended, you wouldn't be with the person you are now with. If you were fired from a job, but now have a better job, you may not be working in that new position if you had not been fired. For every negative, there is almost always a positive, if you look for it.
Now, take a look at the present. Is there anything that you are not going after with full force? Maybe it is a job, a relationship, or a business deal. What is stopping you? Is it something from your past? If so, what is it from your past that is stopping you from moving forward? Once you realize what past event is stopping you from moving ahead now, you can deal with that past issue in your mind, do away with it, and get the ball rolling.
Again, we all get hurt at some point in our lives. The question is, are you going to allow that hurt to keep reverberating throughout your life? Let it go, and you will be amazed at how much happier you are, how much better you feel, in the physical sense, and how much more opportunity comes your way in the present, and in the future. Are you ready to unpack your emotional baggage?
