It’s difficult to run, if we are carrying baggage with us, to give you visual picture, remember how difficult it would be if were to catch a train with a baggage in hand. The point is we know how difficult it is to carry physical baggage and we avoid it many times, but at the same time we forgot to let go of our mental baggage.
It happened to me, and life was really difficult when I had this baggage with me, someone somewhere in the past was not up to my expectation, people let me down many times, many hurt me knowingly or unknowingly, and I had never forgiven them for that.
Anyways I had carried all the baggage with me for many years and it was really difficult to move ahead in my life, thanks to some of very fortunate people whom I met along this journey where I came to know how important it is to let go of the baggage and finally I did let it go.
If you have something from the past that you have difficulty in letting it go, you may want to consider deleting that as your highest priority, because until then you would be in same rut.
