If you’re having trouble letting go of something, it’s usually because of what letting go would mean to you.
If you can’t let go of a relationship, it might be because you believe that letting go means you have failed as a partner. And that failure means you are unlovable.
If you are overtraining at the gym, you might believe that backing off the weights means you’re weak. And being weak means you’re useless.
But if you can’t slow down when you need to, that’s the real weakness.
So if you need to let go of something, examine what letting go means to you about who you are.
And if you can change the meaning, you can change the behavior.
