“Think about any attachments that are depleting your emotional reserves. Consider letting them go.”
– Oprah Winfrey
Now if this doesn’t dig deep, I don’t know what does. Damn that Oprah! Just love her! I don’t even want to get into what my attachments are that are depleting my emotional reserves. Most of you that know me well enough know what they are and those of you that don’t, well consider yourself lucky haha I’m too embarrassed to admit them to the world wide web, won’t lie.
But, just looking at this quote from a broad, universal perspective, how true it is. We only have so much to give of ourselves emotionally and holding on to the past, whether it be friendships, partners or those that have passed, just depletes the emotions we have that could be given to someone or something that deserves them.
Sometimes you just gotta let em’ go, let it be! Think of how great it will be when those emotions can be used towards someone that will reciprocate them; how much stronger your friendships and relationships could be. I’m not saying letting your attachments go is easy, nor am I saying to let go of memories. Just don’t let memories drain you emotionally.
