Just talking  Difficulty Letting Go of Feelings, Memories
We have difficulty letting go of feelings and memories. On some level, we believe that letting go, releasing these feelings and memories into the past, means that they weren't "real enough" to last and therefore be recognized as valid.

If a feeling were valid, we'd still be feeling it. If a feeling were valid, it would have the strength and substance to last indefinitely. If a feeling were valid, it would last long enough and be strong enough to be obvious "evidence" of its existence, its reality, and its validity.

We have a lot of issues with feeling valid. We were never validated as a child, and to this day, we never feel "good enough." And we depend too much on others to determine our sense of our own worth.

How do you deal with these kinds of issues? How do you work through them successfully so that you can heal and have a better life?
