Each and every person carries a little bit of baggage with them. The baggage can be anything – a certain way the person feels about themselves, issues with family, negative outlooks on their current or past situations in life. We all face hardships, and we tend to carry them around with us for days, months, or years to come.
If you feel like you’re carrying heavy baggage or suffering, it may be best to take a step back and figure out how to solve the problem that is causing the baggage. If a problem in our life can be solved to release weight off our shoulder, that’s great. However, in a lot of cases, we have problems that we don’t have control over and are unable to fix ourselves.
In the case where we can’t solve a problem, whether with ourselves, others, or a situation, it’s best to begin the process of letting go and forgiving. When we carry baggage around, the person it hurts most is ourselves. But if we attempt to forgive, we may feel a little bit lighter.
