Professor Teaches Class An Important Lesson

the college professor began her class by holding up a bottle of water she asked the students how much do you think this bottle weighs one pound two pounds three pounds the students answered and then she said imagine I hold this bottle like this for a few minutes what do you think would happen one of the students shouted nothing says she said what if I was to hold this bottle for a few hours the student said that her arm would then start to hurt so she asked again and what if I was to hold this bottle for 24 hours they said you would be in extreme pain your arm could fall off or be totally aching the professor then said notice the weight of the bottle didn't change during that time at all the only thing that changed was the length of time I was holding it she said this bottle represents our challenges our problems our worries our stress and anxiety and it shows that the longer we hold on to them the more damage and harm they can cause us your piece is more important than driving yourself crazy trying to understand why something happened the way it did let it go as Eckhart Tolle said sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on we don't let it go because we think we can control it if a person shows you their true colors don't waste your energy trying to repaint them if a situation isn't serving you or growing you don't try to control it let it go stop wasting energy on people who make you feel like you are hard to love one of the best moments in life is finding the courage to let go of what you cannot change it's not holding on that's the issue it's what we're holding on to we can either hold on to things that weigh us down or lift us up sometimes the weight we want to lose isn't on our body the most expensive real estate in the world isn't Dubai it's not Singapore it's not New York or San Francisco it's your mind don't let anything or anyone stay there for free you have to understand that people come and go stop holding onto those let go of you a long time ago sometimes the person who hurt you they won't have the answers you have to find them yourself they won't have the reasons you have to learn them yourself they won't give you closure you have to do that yourself and remember if we don't heal the pain of our past we will bleed all over our future just set it down and walk away you

  6. I am not certain that this really is as easy to do, as it is to suggest. Dealing with some real Familial hurts and discourse that is disrupting attendance and even invitations to Family gatherings. When you want Harmony in the Family, there is a price to be paid, it seems. I think Forgiveness is essential, but depending on the offense, it unfortunately may tske precious time.

  7. The question is how can we let things go….
    Some things are there which we can't control but have to stay in those situation which affect us…
    So what to do in such situation..πŸ™πŸ˜”

  8. Light a fire, walk away, there’s nothing left to say, so take the ashes from the floor, bury them and just make sure, that nothing more is left from me, just BITTERSWEET MEMORIES!!!

    Sorry he said walk away and this song came to my mind

  9. We don't let it go because we think we can control it. (We can't.) Stop wasting energy on people who make you feel like you're hard to love. (You're not.) The most expensive real estate in the world is our mind. Don't let anything or anyone stay there for free. Stop holding onto those that let go of you a long time ago. I've been watching self-help videos for 5 months now… I'm trying to walking away without looking back.
