Do you find it hard to let go of what is most important to you?

Asked by hungertoragejr (266points) January 21st, 2010

In other words have you had an instance where you had to let go of someone or something that meant a lot to you… What pathway in life did it lead to? How did it effect your life?

Its always hard to let go of important stuff. . . for you to let go of something important means that there’s a more important thing that superseded that thing that you thought was important . . . . Capisce?

Recently, I decided I was addicted to playing my Xbox. I played at minimum 4 hours a day, and my mind was always on new strategies or ideas to try in my gaming later. It was extremely important to me, because I loved everything about video games. Then, I just dropped it. I locked my power cord in a box, and gave it to a friend. Since then, I have gotten outside far more often, and my health has increased greatly. My life definitely changed for the better. Depending on what you’re speaking of, it could definitely be hard. If it is a friend or family member, there will be no easy way to go about it. Just remember at all times that you are not alone, and that many others know how hard it is to be strong, and let go.

@nikayamo well, there you go… you realized that there’s something outside of your Xbox . . . giving it up led to a better way of living for you, which quite frankly I believe is important for anybody. . . . now if I can just get off fluther, I can go home and spend some time with my family. . . . darn it . ..

I can’t concieve of either wanting or “having” to let go of anything I consider important to me. I need more information.

If it were easy to let go of things that are important to you, then they wouldn’t be very important, would they?
