The hardest thing you will ever do

How do you know when it's time to let go of something that hurts you?

In your life right now there a some things you can let go of, yet you probably can't figure out what those things are.  The reason is because you cannot distinguish what to keep in your life and what you should let go of.  You haven't been taught this skill yet.
The majority of people always want to get rid of stuff that is detrimental to happiness in their lives and wanting to keep what hurts them the most.  You cannot let go of family, good health, well being and everything else you take for granted but these are the exact things we try and push away on a daily basis.
You can let go of bad habits, bad influences, toxic people and anything that serves you no purpose in growth in life.  I'm here to let you know how to tell the difference.
Eliminate what causes you the most burden in your life.

It's not going to be an easy task to get rid of these things you feel you need.  Human nature hates change, we don't deal with it well.  You can observe this behavior in a baby's eating habits.
When a baby is breast fed it loves the comfort and bond it develops from being fed by it's mother, there is nothing that can break that bond until the bottle is introduced.  The baby fights the bottle with all it's might because it really hates the feeling of this change.  An infant fights it, always wanting to go back to his mother's breast. Mother knows breast feeding no longer serves a purpose for the babies growth and development.  Then the day food is introduced and just like the bottle the food is not welcomed by the baby, it now fights for the exact thing thing it rejected in the first place, the bottle.  As you can see, even from childhood we always fight change, because change is a difficult aspect in life to deal with.

We often fight to keep the things that do not serve us because we feel we could not live without them.  They give us a sense of well being and comfort until the moment they hurt us.  Seek growth in what you have in life, if something prevent you from growing, eliminate it so you can get more focused on the elements in your life that provide you growth.

One way to tellThe things you often think you can live without, (grass is greener on the other side) you actually need in your life. 
The things you fight to do and keep in your life, can probably be eliminated, they live in your comfort zone.

Look at your friends
Who do tell everyone your never going to talk to again?  Yet once you see them you have a close bond that leaves you filled with negative energy when you leave.  This close friend, can be picked out as the one whom when associate with the important people in your life let you know they are hurting your well being. (Listen to loved ones)
I have several of these friends and I know for growth I must stay away from them as much as possible.  We have a great time together,  but I know to never allow our friendship to become a habit.

Begin to analyse your life, ask yourself what or who no longer serves you purpose for growth and begin to really figure out how you can distance yourself from these elements.  If it's a person, ask yourself do they help me growth spiritually, mentally and emotionally?

Stay motivated
