Holding On

We notice a lot of conversations on the importance of “letting go” in order to support our mental health.
Letting go of insecurities,
of past memories,
of self-doubt,
of frowns and that pout.
But let’s first acknowledge some things about letting go.


šŸ‘€ Letting go can feel scary, when we don’t know how or where to begin.
šŸ‘€ Letting go can feel destabilizing, especially when we are asked to let go of things that have felt all too familiar and comfortable, even if they have been unhelpful.
šŸ‘€ Letting go can feel isolating and lonely.


Let’s shift this conversation!
What if, before we decide to let go, we were to think about things that we could hold on to?āœØ
Holding on to things and people that:


šŸŒ» Have been helpful for us to navigate through life.
šŸŒ» We hold close to us because they tell us who we truly are or who we want to be in this world.
šŸŒ» Remind us of our hopes.
šŸŒ» Ground us in our commitments for the kind of life we want to live.
šŸŒ» Are relaxing and calming.
šŸŒ» Are gentle and comforting.


Hold on. Before you let go. šŸŒ»
Tell us, what are some helpful things you hold on to?
