Spring is often that time of year when we clean our house from top to bottom. We sort through old clothes and other household items, clean out the backs of closets and dark corners that are typically avoided, remove dirt, dust, and other build up, and give our homes an overall cleanse. By the time we’re finished (with this commonly dreaded experience), we feel lighter, happier, cleaner, and relieved.
So wouldn’t it be great it we did this in our personal lives as well?
As humans, we all have a tendency to hold on to past hurts, emotional pain, unhealthy relationships, and destructive patterns. The familiar in our daily lives can easily become comfortable and rather than make a change for the better, we often stick with what we know, even it if is hurting us.
