Wise Words: Stop the Bleeding

by Britni Danielle

“Until you heal the wounds of the past, you are going to bleed” – Iyanla Vanzant

On the road to fulfilling your dreams, many things may prevent us from reaching our goals: Negative self-talk, self-sabotage, questionable choices, and holding on to past pains and regrets. These things have the ability to keep us trapped in negative behaviors and prevent us from living the life we want.

While many people try to put  their past to the side without dealing with it, it always manifests in other ways. Whether your shop too much to overcompensate for feeling worthless, or overeat because you are trying to satisfy something that just won’t go away–you have to deal with your pains, regrets, and hurts.

If you really want to soar….you have to let go of the things weighing you down.

As we move into a new week, it’s time to stop the bleeding, Clutchettes and move on to where you want to be.

Happy Monday!

    Sometimes we do let go of the things weighing us down, but then they come back.
