Sometimes, you are scared to let go because you are scared you are going to lose a piece of yourself forever in what you are leaving behind.
You are scared you won’t get that piece of yourself back. You are scared of being left empty-handed. You are scared it won’t ever be the same, that you won’t ever be the same.
But the minute you let go, you are free.
The minute you let go, you are getting that piece of yourself right back.
Because the truth is, it never left.
You only shed what was no longer necessary.
You were there all along, and you always will be.
You aren’t letting yourself go.
You are winning yourself back.
And what’s so bad about that?
