One of the hardest things in the world is learning to let go. Let go of what? Whatever is holding you back. We want things. Often we can’t do them or achieve them because something is bothering us or plaguing us. For some people it is guilt over their past. We can’t undo the past. We can ask for forgiveness and do our best to repair the damage. Then it is time to let it go. We need to move forward to whatever life is offering us. Some people need to let go of bad habits that are ruining their lives. They wonder why they stay in the rut they are in. If they just let go of bad habits, life might change for the better. Others need to let go of grudges. I know so many people who are filled with grudges. Grudges eat away at your heart and soul. They make you hateful and bitter. Let go of grudges and live your life! Quit worrying about someone else’s! Some people need to let go of the need of constant control. We can’t control everything. The world will not quit spinning if we lose control of some aspects. We are not God and that is the way it is meant to be. Let go of some control.
Did any of the above scenarios remind you of yourself? Maybe you should let go. I have struggled with letting go. It’s not the easiest thing to do because worrying and control are part of my make-up. My mother actually used to laugh about this with me. While it is a little comical, it is also quite serious.
