There comes a point in every one’s life when they have something of value that they can’t let go. The challenge to relinquish something can test the strength and will power of a person. This sort of struggle frequently presents itself, for example, people may hold on to possessions such as , a significant other, jobs, and sometimes material things. Earlier in the month I was redecorating my room and found several things that triggered the question, “Why do I still have this?”. It was obvious that at one point in my life these things meant a lot to me and even though my life has moved on I still had problems with the idea of throwing them away. These sentimental trinkets still managed to bring forth emotions, but is that reason enough to continue to hold on to them? I wondered if I had continued to hold on to these things for the sake of fond memories or because of my inability to let go? When people hold on to their possessions it can be for purposes of gratification. Those who hold on to things such as failing relationships or conflicting jobs may do so for the sake of the title or the fear of change. Although this is a matter that is kept under wraps in society, we often see this sort of issue take place in the public eye. The sports industry is a prime example of the prevelance of this issue,many pro atheletes in sports find it difficult to retire and let go of their position because of their love for the sport and perhaps the position in the spotlight. Some may say that as long as its making that person happy one should hold on as long as possible. This may be a good theory but what if this happiness is tainted with denial. My mother once told me that everything has a season and just as the seasons move along, so should I. Pride and fear of change can cause us to hold on to things that aren’t worthwhile. One thing that I have learned is if you continue to hold on to the past you’ll never have room for what the present has to offer. The day I reorganized my bedroom and tossed out what no longer had a place in my life, I found enough room for whatever the New Year has to bring.
