Should We Hold On

Sometimes the most challenging is to hold on. The mind cripples in the thoughts of letting go and the heartaches to stay longer. There is the bitter truth and absolute reality in the chaos of relationships. There is a triumph in holding on and letting go – all based on which side of the coin you are looking at. However, when there are times that question the core of how things are in life, the heart and mind have a tough time deciding which side of the coin it is this time. Healthy relationships conquer such dilemmas from a much calmer perspective. And not all bonds are the same – just like the two different sides of the same coin! 

Well, the question remains: What is the quest all about? What is helping you become who you are destined to be? Is it this relationship? Because it sure has to be a significant part of your growth – emotional, physical, mental, social, spiritual, and psychological. When you know, there is room for chances that you will not be violated and ridiculed. There can be space for awareness and humble submissions. When two completely different individuals come together, there is always some agitation over the silliest reasons. How you reason with them and maintain the bond cordially determines how long the relationship will last. While there is beauty in holding on and being present, there is wisdom in understanding what is best for you. Therefore, do not, in any way, depend on any external factor to ladder your growth and advancement in life. May that be the longest and the strongest bond. There is always and forever only you by your side. Never let that light stop shining. 

Ultimately, the decision to hold on or let go is personal and requires careful consideration. Remember that letting go can be difficult, but it can also be liberating and lead to new opportunities. Knowing when to hold on and when to let go is a challenging but essential aspect of life. Holding on or letting go depends on the situation and context.

5 points to consider

  1. Evaluate the situation 
    Before making any decision, assess the situation carefully. Analyze the pros and cons of holding on versus letting go.
  2. Consider your emotions 
    Emotions can cloud our judgment. Be aware of your feelings and try to evaluate the situation objectively.
  3. Identify what you are holding on to 
    Determine why you are holding on to something. Is it out of fear, insecurity, or habit? Understanding your motives can help you make a more informed decision.
  4. Consider the future 
    Consider how holding on or letting go will impact your future. Will holding on bring you closer to your goals or hinder your progress? Will letting allow you move forward and grow?
  5. Trust your instincts 
    Sometimes, our instincts can guide us toward the right decision. If you feel strongly about something, trust yourself.

Hold on as long as it is worth holding on, and holding on should not hamper your mental health and everyday life choices. And it must cost nothing. Your happiness and joy in your life are paramount.
