Thanks Robin. That’s an interesting point: “is that one thinks if they let go , their pain means nothing…. Or that they do not feel vindicated.”
There comes a point when we must let go of the pain and suffering because it gets too much to bear. I call it ‘hitting rock bottom.’ That can be a good thing because the only way is up from there. Perhaps people need to hit this point to realise that letting go is their ONLY choice.
