Do you have emotions from an event, situation, or relationship that you won’t let go of? How long should you hang on to these emotions before they become unhealthy? Each situation will be different but over time, your emotions should calm down and what you will be left with are memories, both good and bad. If you hang on to raw emotions and hurt for too long or for… the wrong reasons, you could be setting yourself up for future relationship failure, not to mention the potential damage it can have on your physical health.
If negative emotions persist over long periods of time (years), consider seeking professional guidance to resolve these issues. Hanging on to emotional baggage will ultimately prevent you from experiencing all the joy that life has to offer and will prevent you from moving forward and finding an extraordinary relationship…your soul mate.
