To Everything That Held You Back In The Past Year

leave behind past year

The past year may have presented you with challenges, heartache, or loss. It may have felt like you were pushed to your limits. But we are in the full swing of 2020 — a brand new year of experiences. It’s an opportunity to leave all that held you back in the past year.

I hope that you leave behind all the toxic individuals that were sucking the life out of you.

I hope you left behind lovers, friends, or even family members that hurt you with their words and actions. I hope you left those who doubted and tried to bring you down. You don’t have to hold any resentment or hate towards those people. However, you should leave them in the past, wish them well, and continue to move forward. 

I hope that you leave all of your fears in the last year.

Shed your fear of failure and your fear of criticism. Furthermore, leave your fear of love and being vulnerable. Your fear of rejection. Your fear of change. I hope you leave all fear behind in all of its forms. Living your life to its fullest can only be achieved when you face all of life’s new experiences with a brave heart. If you let fear win then you’ll never know all that you’re capable of. And even worse, you might miss out on some amazing opportunities. 

I hope you leave your insecurities behind.

It’s hard to learn how to stop your insecurities in their tracks, but you have to stop listening to your inner critic. Leave behind the tendency to look in the mirror and cringe every time you see yourself. You are a masterpiece. Remember that. Embrace your imperfections. Stop bullying yourself. Accept every part of you. 

I hope you leave all your worries behind.

Don’t worry about the past. There is no point in worrying about what has happened — you cannot change it. Don’t worry about what the future may hold. Rather, concentrate on living in the present. Don’t worry about the things that you can’t control. Instead, focus on the things that you can do right now to live a better life. 

I hope you leave behind all of the pain you endured last year.

I hope you let it go and only bring the lessons that every sting of pain taught you. I hope that you healed from it and found peace of mind so that you can continue onward with life. 

Ultimately, I hope you leave everything that no longer aligns with your life path. 

Growth means leaving something that you needed last year, but might be holding you back this year. Leave behind your mistakes, as well as any resentment or grudges. I hope you shed everything from your past so you can become the person you want to be. Leave it all behind so you can confidently walk into the next year.
