Some excellent food for thought in here. As difficult as it is to ‘let stuff go’, it’s imperative for growth. Suppressing emotions and holding things in are indeed threatening to your physical health. I have found that negative emotions not dealt with quickly lead to bitterness. And none of us really wants to be bitter – we’d all prefer to be better 😉
Please take a look at this post, and hold it close to your heart. For the words are wise, and the advice is helpful.
I’ve had a really good few days. I’ve been with people who I feel able to talk with and really say what I am feeling and ask the questions I usually only turn over in my mind. That rare breed of people you can let your guard down with and explore some craziness. It’s been good. Feels good.

There have been days where I was in so much pain I could barely walk! Know the feeling? It has felt at times as a literal weight of the world on my shoulders. Somehow I’m betting you can relate. The stress alone of worry, anxiety, fear, depression and all the other nasties puts us at a much higher risk for sickness of all sorts. Scary really.
Thank you for this wonderful reminder that it’s not even worth it to hold on to mess that isn’t doing one bit of good in our hearts and minds. It’s a powerful realization that we truly can walk out of prison at any time. It takes work but freedom is ours.

As mentioned in my previous comment response, the post I shared today struck me to the core.
I need to stop limiting a limitless God 😉
