Letting Go

Sometimes life may throw things at someone that they just don’t know if they can handle. It is these times in life when it seems as letting go is the last option one can take. If something seems to hard to handle, there are ways to not let them affect ones sobriety. One way to prevent things from overwhelming someone is to let go of the thing. Find another obstacle that’s easier to tackle, and go for it. This can help to build confidence, which can help to later tackle the more difficult challenges faced. Let go of the negativity that may be holding you back.

Letting go also means someone is forgiving others when they hurt, or offend someone else. It is important to forgive, when living a positive life unforgiveness will stunt someone from being positive, and will have them digging a hole for themselves.Holding things in can be more damaging to the person with unforgiveness in their heart, because the other person may not even realize they have offended anyone. Don’t hold on to things that may hold you back. To be continued……


My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.
