Why You Don’t Have to Let Go of the Past – and what to do instead

Grief & Loss | 4 comments

You don’t have to let go of the past. Just don’t live in it.

Time is relative and human-made. The past – our treasured and even not so treasured memories – have so much to teach us. Being fully self-aware and growing into who you are becoming means living in the present and on the edge of the future you are choosing.

You may know that I lost my son Quinn to murder. Well, his birthday is October 16th. It makes me so mad when people tell me to let go of Quinn or of the past because I don’t want to, I don’t have to and really it’s a bad idea.

I share more about that in this video.

Love & Blessings,

Brenda MacIntyre, Medicine Song Woman
