Why it is so hard to let go?


There is a scene in the film where one of the protagonists decides to let of the resentment she feels towards her mother. She makes it a ritual with her mum present. She releases balloons, that represent her feelings, into the air and says good-bye to them. It is pretty awesome!

So, have you ever wondered why it is so difficult to let go? With me, it is that I feel greatly invested. When it is time to let go, be it an object, a person, a concept or belief, I feel that I am tearing a part of me off and saying good-bye to it. The the result of letting-go is more Freedom – which is super great! But the process of letting go is often torturous! I realized that every time I need to say good-bye to something that has been part of me for a long time, I need to grieve it.

It is not by accident that we make such a fuss of burying our dead. It is a ritual of letting go.

During the Therapeutic-Art Coaching Program, we create a ritual and spend time with letting go of any outdated elements of our lives that need to be released so we can feel freer.

Program starts on 10 April and lasts for 2 months with 6+2meetings.
