Moodzie knows sometimes it can be hard to let go of things, as we as humans may at times get so accustomed to our way of life, and doing the things we are used to, that we just do not want to see change. Whether that thing be something materialistic like a toy or game, or something else much more intimate and emotional such as a grudge against a friend, we as humans need to learn to let these silly things go. Moodzie knows, sometimes a friend or even a family member can hurt your feelings, but we have to realize that these things if they do happen usually happen by mistake, and hence we have to learn to forgive, rather than holding a grudge against a friend. As Moodzie knows if you hold a grudge against that friend, you will just end up feeling worse, and think about it a lot more, however if you just let it go, you forgive your friend, you will for some reason feel a ton better, like a weight has been lifted off you, and you will realize you have done the right thing. If you still are finding it a tough task to forgive your friend or whomever hurt you, Moodzie has a tip, imagine yourself in their shoes, by that meaning imagine that you had accidentally hurt your friend and now he or she has a grudge against you meaning, that now you have lost a friend because of your actions and have hurt somebody, thus this will induce a feeling of guilt inside a person, which can also be very painful and hard to deal with.
On the other end Moodzie realizes that many times we may become attached to material things, and sometimes those things may be harmful to us, however we still struggle to let those things go. These can be things such as videogames or unhealthy foods, both in a way are material things, which can be easily addicting. However, at times, we have to be strong and realize that if these material things are harming us, we must let them go. As Moodzie really loved playing this one video game named Call of Duty, however Moodzie realized that he was playing this game so much, that Moodzie was nearly spending the bulk of the day playing a video game, and also that videogame gave Moodzie violent tendencies, hence Moodzie realized it was for Moodzie to let go off that game, as it was serving Moodzie little to no benefit but only wasting of Moodzie’s time and harming Moodzie.
Letting go off material things, may sound easy to some, however it can be a very tough task to accomplish, as at times, we as humans get so attached to material things, that we treat them with an emotional sentiment, hence it can really become like letting go of something that is an important aspect of one’s life. However, whether it be material or something sentimental, we must learn to go of things to further improve ourselves and be happy. As to let go of something when important is essential for improved emotional and mood regulation.
