So yesterday a friend and I went and got balloons from the grocery store by our place. We got 2 of each and wrote on it what we were struggling or dealing with. Lately I had been feeling like I had been blowing things a little bit too much in my head about someone who I like and was not getting enough attention that I wanted from them. I started thinking in my head that maybe I did something wrong to them, or hurt their feelings, and it kind of also made me feel like I wasn’t good enough anymore. I started blowing them up in my head thinking about it over and over and over, so I wrote on my first balloon idolatry, because I feel like I was making this person an idol in my life, when there is no way this person should even have this much weight on my life. On the second balloon I wrote insecurity, because I feel like I have been constantly wanting this persons and other peoples approval on how I dress and look. I kept worrying about how I looked and wanting someone to compliment me. I feel like I mentally tried hard in the beginning when getting dressed for the night, hoping I would be “noticed/accepted.”
So I took all of those reoccurring thoughts in my head, all those what if questions, and put them in those two balloons and let them go into the air. I use this to symbolically represent that I am going to LET IT ALL GO and NEVER revisit those thoughts again!
I encourage you to let it go too! Whatever your dealing with, that is hard to let go of… seal it up, and just let it go!!
