Have you ever heard the phrase just Hold On? What does it mean to hold on? According to Webster Dictionary, to hold on means to grasp or support something with one’s hands: When there is a grasp on something the hands have a grip and is locked on it. Hands are not the only way to hold on to something. Another way to hold on to something is to hold on to it emotionally.
Imagine having a grasp and a grip locked on emotional things like, past hurts, disappointments, belittling conversations, rejections, negative thoughts, unforgiveness, hurtful and destructive acts like you would hold on to something with your hands. Holding on could be a good thing, but it depends on what you decide to hold on to. Emotional hurts are not good things to hold on to. Emotional hurts appear to be useless things and have no purpose or value. Holding on to things that have no value, worth or things that do not offer, add improvements to life or value is a waste of time. Holding on to things that keep your mind occupied and distracted with useless things will cause you to miss out or remain stagnant emotionally. When you are holding on to the wrong things your outlook on life is consumed with useless thoughts.
Holding on to the wrong things will cause you to miss the opportunity to embrace and explore things that are full of life. Things that are full of life are the total opposite of things that will keep your mind focused on the wrong things, the things that adds no value. Embracing things that are full of life gives you the ability to show forgiveness, love, kindness and gives you a high level of peace. Although useless thoughts do not have a good purpose, they still take up space by bogging you down with worry, anger, and resentment. Holding on to useless thoughts are a waste of time. Learning to let go of things that keep your mind on useless thoughts will provide you with the feelings of being empowered and allow room for growth. I Will, Will You?
