10 Things You Need To Let Go Of This Summer

If the recent tragic events in Orlando have taught us anything, it’s that life is short. We waste so much of our precious time on this earth consumed in our own personal woes that we forget how much of a blessing this life truly is. Summer is a time to be carefree and there’s no better feeling than letting go of things that have been weighing you down.

Here are ten things you seriously need to let go of this summer:

1. Stress

Seriously. Who isn’t stressed? From work to family life to relationships and friend drama, who honestly has time for that crap? Life is short. Try to chill tf out and enjoy life.

2. Grudges

Grudges are never healthy and the best way to get rid of them is to forgive whoever did you wrong and move on. You’ll be doing yourself a favor more than anything.

3. Crushes that are going nowhere

Sure, having a crush can be exciting in the beginning but once it starts to fizzle out, they can be kind of depressing. If it’s not moving in the direction you want, move on.

4. Insecurities

We all feel insecure from time to time but it shouldn’t rule your life. Trust me, dump these little soul-suckers before they ruin your self-esteem.

5. Guilt

Guilt reminds us that we’re not perfect yet we tend to feel guilty for things we did not cause. Let it go and remind yourself to do better next time.

6. Regrets

Regrets show us that we know we can do better. Don’t dwell on them but be mindful when the occasion arises next time. What’s done is done and we need to remember that we can’t change the past.

7. Thoughts that don’t make you feel empowered

Everyone should feel empowered to be their best and go after what they want. Stop beating yourself up for qualities you think you’re lacking.

8. Fear

Fear is the worst! It can stop you from achieving incredible things. Everyone feels afraid from time to time but you need to remind yourself that no matter how scared you are, you should always step out of your comfort zone. Now that’s fearless!

9. Money woes

Ugh! Hate money probs! No matter what your money situation is this summer, trying to save is always the best option but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun, too!

10. Bad habits

Everyone has at least one bad habit. Too much sugar? Smoking? Excessive drinking? That shit ain’t cute. This summer, try to be the healthiest you can be and soon enough, those cravings will be a distant memory!
