Let Go

Author: Unknown

To “Let Go” does not 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 to change or blame another
It’s to make the most of 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 the outcome
But to allow others to affect their destinies.

To “Let Go” is not to be protective
But 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 instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.

To “Let Go” is not to adjust everything to my own desires
But to take each day as it comes, and cherish myself in it.

To “Let Go” is not to criticize and regulate anybody
But to try and become what I dream I can be.

To “Let Go” is to not regret the past
But to grow and live for the future.

To “Let Go” is to fear less
And love more.
