Dump Your Baggage…to Move Forward

We all have baggage. They were given to us in our childhoods by parents, friends, and associates. Later on in life, our spouses and employers give us some more baggage.

Although baggage can be associated with good and bad things that happened to us, the word is mostly used to describe the effects of negative experiences and traumatic events throughout the different stages of life.

Low self-esteem, guilt, fear, pessimism, anger, and the desire to please others are some examples of baggage. We walk around heavily burdened because every choice and decision we make are filtered through our baggage.

The ongoing effect is that of insecurity in everything we do.

Therefore, we continuously behave in unproductive manners and sabotage the plan designed to move us forward.

If we are to have positive changes in our future, we must dump all unnecessary baggage because they will only serve as hurdles in our paths.
