Sometimes it’s hard to say goodbye. It just feels easier to keep holding on. But in the long run it’s usually a good idea to let go, it’s the daring thing to do. It allows room for new things, for transformation. And maybe the goodbye isn’t even forever, but you can’t know until you really say goodbye and mean it. In some cases, goodbye is really the end, and good riddance! For this assignment, say goodbye to all the things you need to let go of: bad habits, dead people, alive people, ex-boyfriends and girlfriends, self-destructive feelings and behaviors, jobs, projects, re-occuring thoughts, etc.
Write it as a simple list:
Goodbye wetting the bed.
Good bye interrupting people when they are talking.
It can be as long or as short as you like. And, most importantly, take a moment with each one to really say goodbye. This isn’t a catalogue of your fears and faults, this is a ceremony to bid them farewell.Please don’t send us HELLOS, only goodbyes.
