Here are 8 misconceptions of the truth that I have been discovering since I was given the grace to start holding loosely to my life and others.
1- To let go doesn’t mean to stop loving or caring, it means that I realize that I can’t do it for someone else.
2- To let go is not to separate or cut myself off, but the realization that I am unable to control another.
3- To let go is not to enable, but to allow the process of learning from natural consequences to take place.
4- To let go is to admit powerlessness, which means I realize that results and outcomes are ultimately not in my hands.
5- To let go is not to be protective, but to permit another to face reality which will lead to discovery and understanding.
6- To let go is not to deny, but to accept and embrace.
7- To let go is not to regret the past or the future, but to grow and choose to live this day in the present moment.
8- To let go is to be less fearful and anxious and to give myself permission to live a life that is enjoyable and large.
Remember - Like a flower needs to let go of its petals so it can fully blossom so must we learn to let go so we can fully discover the life we were always meant to live.
