Abandonment vs. Indifference
This post is part of the #YourTurnChallenge
Why is it so hard for us to let go sometimes?
1. Because we have a need for control
I’ve heard that one before but I’d like to go further.
2. Because we confuse abandonment (giving up control) with indifference. Trusting with not caring.
Because we feel that by letting go, by renouncing to the outcome, we will think of ourselves as less interested in the issue at hand. And our need to be in control of what we think of ourselves doesn’t allow us to do that.
