To Let Go
To Let Go is not to cut myself off; it's the realization that I can't control another.
To Let Go is not to enable, but to allow learning from natural consequences.
To Let Go is to admit powerlessness, which means the outcome is not in my hands.
To Let Go is not to try to change or blame another, I can only change myself.
To Let Go is not to care for, but to care about.
To Let Go is not to judge, but to allow another to be a human being.
To Let Go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes, but to allow others to affect their own outcome.
To Let Go is not to be protective, it is to permit others to face reality.
To Let Go is not to deny, but to accept.
To Let Go is not to nag, scold or argue, but to search out my own shortcomings and to correct them.
To Let Go is not to adjust everything to my desires, but to take each day as it comes and to cherish the moment.
To Let Go is not to criticize and regulate anyone, but to try to become what I dream I can be.
To Let Go is to fear less and love more.
Someone shared this with me some time back. I had a hard day and happened to pull it out of my drawer and read it. It helped me today and I hope it touches someone else who may need it.
