Letting go is probably one of the hardest thing to do. As human beings we tend to get attached to things, people, situations etc. But we need to learn when to let go otherwise it ruins our health, mental state of mind because this is what happens when we fight against ourselves. When we let go of a certain situation that has been weighing on our minds, we instantly feel light and free from what seemed like shackles. However, as soon as we let go we find we are clinging again.
"The only thing that is harder than letting go is moving on."
The reason we should learn to let go is apparent, for our wellbeing. Surely it's hard wanting to be right or getting it right all the time, getting upset by people leaving your life and chewing over what was said or should have been said. We need to keep our ego in check, which is evidently ourselves and not a separate thing from ourselves as some may think. Letting go let us see with clarity without clouding our judgement.
"Let go of your attachment to being right, and suddenly your mind is more open."
Letting go doesn't mean we are weak or don't care, it just mean we are not prepared to play someone else's game of right or wrong, lost or gain. We don't need to prove our worth to anyone, just be in total acceptance of ourselves.
"Some of us think holding on makes us strong but sometimes it is letting go." Herman Hesse
Believe me my friends when I say there is everything to be gained by letting go, when you stop the struggle against yourself magic happens.
"Sometimes letting go is the only way to find out who you are meant to be."
Let go and surrender to life
Don't hold on too tight
Or walk on the edge of a knife
Flow like a river the life giver
That goes round and over obstacles
Without struggle or dither
When all is done be at peace
Not in pieces
Stay calm and smile with ease
