Emotional cleansing

“Just as we wash our bodies and our clothes, we need to cleanse our emotional outlook….Many of us act as psychic garbage collectors, vacuuming in other people’s negativity. Since we have more than enough of our own baggage to deal with, we must have the courage to let go of that which is not ours to carry.” ~Sue Patton Thoele, The Woman’s Book of Courage
