Emotional Anchor (n.) -- A past resentment, negative condition, un-let-go-of issue, or damage caused by another person that keeps someone stuck in the past and feeling like they are unable to move forward. People can often not realize they have dropped an anchor until they experience long periods where forward movement should be occurring but nothing is happening – not even movement underneath the surface
Sentence: Nancy realized her life wasn’t moving forward because she hadn’t pulled up the anchor and let go of her past hurts. Once she did, her boat slowly started moving forward again.
