Let It Go and Find Healing!

Life is a lot like bumper cars. You know that when you get into your car you’ll get bumped, but you don’t know how hard. The harder we get bumped by someone, the tendency is too bump back as hard as we can. There are perceived benefits to holding onto our anger. It makes us feel powerful and in control. However, we do great damage to ourselves when we hang onto an unforgiving spirit. Forgiveness is a powerful tool which can transform our entire being—from the beast to the beauty! Forgiveness doesn’t mean agreeing with or condoning what has happened. Forgiveness means letting go and knowing that regardless of how challenging or difficult the experience may seem, God has ordained it in order for you to heal, grow, and learn.

Are You An Approval Addict?

Pastor John Ortberg, author of The Life You’ve Always Wanted, says if we live with a nagging sense we aren’t important or special enough; if we’re envious of others’ success; if we keep trying to impress important people; if we’re worried someone might think ill of us, then we’re probably approval addicts.

‘Fear of man’ is on the top of the list of the most common fears. Society’s myth says: I must depend on others for my value. I must be loved or approved by every significant person in my life. Sadly all this mindset does is make us people-pleasers because we fear rejection and disappointing the people in our lives. We compromise in order to gain approval. People are big and God is small. How can we successfully overcome our people-pleasing [fear of man] tendencies?

Let Go of the Fear of the Unknown & Fear of Change

Our greatest and most common fears are the fear of the unknown and the fear of change (or letting go). Why do we hang on to our carefully planned lives and schedules so tight? Why do we hang onto thinking and behavioral patterns like they’re a precious diamond ring? Answer: the fear of losing control. If we lose control then we’re vulnerable. Are you ready to make a change and let go of your fears?

I do want say first off: If you desire to know what fear does to our brains and bodies listen to the episode titled: The Secret to Life, Health, and Happiness: Change Your View of God

In an article titled: Nurse reveals the top 5 regrets people make on their deathbed; one of the regrets was: I wish that I had let myself be happier. The article said: This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realize until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change forced them to pretend to others, and to themselves, that they were content. When deep within, they longed to laugh and have joy in their life again.

I agree that one of our greatest & most common fears is the fear of the unknown and the fear of change or letting go. People have said that one of the hardest lessons in life is learning to let go. Change is never easy. We tend to fight to hang on & we fight to let go. I think we all fear that life is painful and overwhelming, but we don't want to admit it—because to do so would require a frightening dependence on God.
