There’s an old zen proverb that says “Knowledge is learning something new every day. Wisdom is letting go of something every day”.
Minute by minute, the world is teaching us new and amazing things. We learn from everything we see, hear, taste, touch & smell.
As good as it is to learn new and beautiful things every day, you also have to use wisdom in what to keep learning and what to let go of. I know this can be difficult, especially when you have to let go of lessons beliefs that you’ve held on to for so long you feel completely lost living without them but that in itself is a new lesson…. learning to live without old lessons.
For your mental health and well-being, it’s crucial for you to use wisdom and let go.
Now like I said earlier, it’s not easy. You’re unlearning things that have been installed in your brain for years and years and then some more so with that said, take your time. It’s okay to take baby steps. Think of a child who always believed in the tooth fairy or Santa Claus: When their parent, guardian, or friend tells them “There’s no such thing as (fill in the blank) that child is instantly in a state of shock. Depending on how deep they’re belief was in the fairytale, it will take them a few days to finally come to terms with reality. As small as they are, they come to understand this new truth and use their adorable wisdom to let go of the myth.
This action happens to everyone at any age. It’s not an overnight success, it’s a journey and that’s what makes it so beautiful.
