I realize it is all part of my own growth and learning process. Letting go, just isn't easy for me. I often feel the emotional entanglements of everything going on around me. I often feel what others feel to the degree that sometimes it clouds my own comprehension of what is going on within me. I know that and I get it, but sometimes it doesn't make it any easier.
A recent situation came up and it was one of those that could have easily taken me under. I really tried not to shield myself from what was going on and staying engaged with it, but I tried to not become emotionally attached to it. Letting go was something I was working on.
