Wishcast Wednesday – What burden to you wish to put down?

Wishcast Wednesday again and this week, Jamie Ridler asks…

What burden to you wish to put down?

This wish prompt makes me want to just sit right down and sob.  I didn’t realize how burdened I felt until I read this prompt.
I think that I try so much to be optimistic and positive and I try to think of my issues in a positive light that they will soon be gone.  I do positive affirmations, positive thinking and yet I know that I still carry a lot of “stuff”.
Of course, I wish to let go of the burden of my “stuff”, but I also know that I am a work in progress and that the “stuff” is full of lessons that I have not learned yet and issues I need to work through.
I have one specific burden that weighs heavier and is more painful than the others; that is the burden of the pain, heartbreak, fear, and self-recriminations that is the residue of an abusive relationship.
I wish to put down and walk away from the burden of thinking I could have changed anything about that situation.  That I could have changed how I responded or how he treated me.  That I could have or should have left earlier than I did.  That I let him change me. 
I think I have been holding onto these self-loathing thoughts for too long–it’s time to let them go.
You did what you knew, now that you know better, you’ll do better.
