To Let Go Takes Love

I hope you are all doing well. Here’s one of my favorite poems about letting go. Unfortunately, I couldn’t track down the author of it.

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 is the realisation 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 is 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 all the outcomes,

but to allow others to affect their destinies.

To Let Go is not to be protective,

it is 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

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 to become what I dream I can be.

To Let Go is not to regret the past,

but to grow and live for the future.

To Let Go is to fear less,

and love more.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by.
