Sometimes letting go is difficult. Uncertainty, and a sense vulnerability have caused me to be very rigid these days. I think the best way to overcome this is to realize these emotions are probably based on my reluctance to let go of old habits and beliefs. It is so hard to welcome change (especially when this is thrust on you). Sure, some change can be positive, but for the most part, it is easier to hold on to what you know. Sure, I wanted (and even asked for) some new employment. What I didn’t request was the lack of certainty I am experiencing. On some level I am aware that this period will eventually be one of growth and progress. Right now, however, I am struggling to keep this in mind.
