Letting Go

 

To let go doesn’t mean to stop caring. It means I can’t do it for someone
else. 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 and 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 fix, but to be supportive. 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 outcomes. To let go is not to be protective, it is to permit another
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 correct them.
To let go is not to adjust everything to my desires, but to take each
day as it comes and 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 not to regret the past, but to grow
and live for the future. To let go is to fear less and love more
