Letting Go

An easy concept, yet the hardest thing humans have to learn to do. Letting go can mean many different things... and each one might be harder than the last. Letting go can mean grieving and moving on after a loved one dies. It can mean being okay after a break-up or a rejection.

With such a hard concept and infinite possibilities of relationships to deal with, it is a wonder how we survive. How time heals us. How the second a boyfriend dumps you, your beloved grandmother dies, or your friend decides you are now an enemy... our lives seem to crumble. How we wish that life would have thrown us a bone or warned us somehow.

So how do we do it? Once something happens that crumbles our very world, that makes us question our relationships, and that produces rainstorm-size tears, what do we do?

Give it time and train your mind. Letting go is not an overnight process. It can take weeks, months, even years... depending on the situation. When you have invested the time to train your mind to let go, you will be a better person. You'll cry. You'll scream. You'll question why it happened and think about every different possibility that never happened. But once you settle down... think about why it happened. Perhaps a new, better, and exciting relationship is around the corner. Maybe death is what will cause you to live your life. You never know how much trouble that lost friend could have gotten you in and maybe you're better off without them. So forgive life. It doesn't care about your plans... sometimes you just have to roll with the punches.
