So often we carry things around because we don’t have a solution, because we can’t let go, or because we think we deserve to be weighed down. Instead of breaking free, we keep going. We keep carrying the extra weight.
And we don’t just carry our weight, but we try to carry the weight of our loved ones, and the weight of the world. If the guilt, fear, regret, anger, worry, stress, frustration, pain or whatever it is you are carrying is too heavy, put it down for a while. Put it down and take care of your heart. Put it down and rest. Put it down and write about your struggles. Put it down and ask for help.
It’s almost impossible to have clarity on next steps or to really know what you want when you are carrying too much. Perhaps, after you put it down and feel light, you can move towards giving it away, forgiving yourself, and letting go.
You don’t deserve to be weighed down. You deserve to feel light. You deserve a minute of peace. You deserve to smile, laugh, and to be free.
If it’s too heavy, put it down.
