In this blog post there are three short videos, all on the theme of Letting Go. Although it is natural to focus on the drinker, how much they are drinking, how often, when they will come home, what state will they be in, etc, unfortunately it doesn’t help. It doesn’t help the situation, if you focus more on the drinker and the drinking, it does not change it one bit. It also doesn’t help you either.
However bad the problem worrying about it will only make it worse. Practise the habit of ”letting go” (make a list of your concerns if it will help). Decide to put these worries out of your mind for one hour. Stick to that decision and push them away every time the anxiety comes back. For this hour you are practising (perhaps for the first time?) the art of “letting go”.
“Letting go” takes practice but it is positive to learn how to do it. “Letting go” says I will push away these worries and not let them cling to me so I carry them around. Anxiety can feel huge, but practicing letting them go reduces the size of our worries. Don’t be disheartened. There is a saying here in the UK ………….”Practice makes perfect”.
