“If you feel like you can’t let go of the feeling, ask yourself, ‘Why? What do I need to look at? What is holding me back from letting go?’ A past event or experience will often surface if you ask with a feeling of curiosity and let yourself be open to any answer that comes. You may need to go back to Step 2 if this is the case.”
What is holding me back from letting go? I think it’s still feeling unsafe, like I’m a fugitive running away from the people in my past.
Aja, the past actions of others can’t be changed and we can only choose after a point to stop believing that the past will control everything about our life, including our ability to face life and our worth as a person.
