Put Them Down

Regrets are small stones of grief we carry around. When we put them down, the practice of letting go stays with us. Practicing letting go means also letting go of the heaviness of grief. Other memories, of people, places, and times we miss, remain for us to enjoy....

To throw something out, you must compare the past usefulness of an item with the possibility the item will be useful in the future. But if something has strong emotional value or relevance, such as sentimental objects or even out-dated beliefs, it can be much harder to let it go....
