What would it be like, just for today, to let it go…
What would it be like to let go of your anger at – whatever it is… the situation, the job, the friend, the enemy, your parents, your children, your ex, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your spouse.
Just for today, what would it be like to let go of your anger at yourself.
Just for today, what if you let go of what they did, or should have done and didn’t – or what you did, or should have done and didn’t?
How would it feel, right now, to just let go of the story?
No matter how right you are.
No matter how wrong they are.
No matter how justified you might be.
How would it feel, just for today, to take a vacation from it. Not for them, but for yourself.
Today, you don’t hate – whoever.
Today, you don’t hate yourself.
Today, you are not broken.
You are not a mess.
Today, you are not the fat person, or the weak person or the unwanted.
You are not the loser. You are not the victim.
Today, you are not inherently flawed, or incapable of love, or unlovable.
And neither are they.
What if, just for today, you let go of the shame?
What would that look like for you?
And then – tomorrow – you can have it all back again.
If you want it.
