Letting go and moving on when you’ve tried everything

If you ask me on any given day about obstacles, I’ll say, well, think of them as challenges, learning experiences.  Get curious about them.

However, there are certain circumstances where you may have tried absolutely everything to meet a work deadline or figure out what your boss wanted.

Maybe the obstacle is with your partner, you’ve attempted to deal with their behaviors, but only the person themselves can change.

You’ve grown frustrated, you are tired, you question why you are still putting forth the effort.

We’ve all been there.

So what do you do?  When it gets to the point mentioned above, the best thing to do is emotionally let go.  Put the obstacle in a Universe Jar, a space holder for it.  Or share the situation with a counselor or confidant.

Let go of the burden.  Then see what happens.

Maybe through insight and reflection, you physically let go of the work or personal relationship.

Maybe you modify it, putting stronger boundaries around it.

Each scenario is different, but the letting go, lets the light in for transformation to occur.
