2014 is here and there is no better time to leave your past behind to achieve a healthier, happier relationship now and in the future.
When it comes to relationships, the past can feel so heavy. Holding onto old hurts can actually cause physical stress, sore muscles, body aches, as well as fatigue and sadness. Take a minute and visualize yourself carrying the burden of your past — how much weight are you carrying around and bringing into your love life?
Not only is holding onto the past detrimental to your physical health, it can contribute to emotional difficulties and lack of fulfillment in the dating and relationship world. If you have not let go of your past, you may find that you want love, but insecurities or fears hinder your ability to date. You may be actively looking for a partner, but are struggling to make meaningful connections. If your old relationship wounds are unhealed or unacknowledged, they may sabotage your present relationships.

Hope your new year is going well!
