Let It Go-How Do We Do That?
Just let it go.
We all have come across that sentence countless times, haven't we?
Has anyone noticed that that sentence often doesn't follow how to let it go?
You feel the emotion coming to your heart, mind, and soul.
You permit yourself and the emotion to stay with you. You let it be there. Oh, it's going to be uncomfortable, painful, and much more.
Don't try to mask it or try to ignore it. The only way to the other side of this is through.
Don't try to control it.
Let it be seen and heard and valued.
Then a moment will come where it will no longer have power over you.
That's when you make a conscious choice to thank it for being with you till then and let it go.
You will need to do this a few times before it becomes second nature. Like forgiveness. Forgiveness is not a one-time thing.
It's a choice we make over and over till it becomes natural. We get to a point where we no longer think about it. When you walk up to your car, you don't consciously think about opening the door; you open it—That's where we are going with this.
I will be honest and tell you that I am going through this process. I decided to write this today because I am at that moment. I can smile at the pain and anger and say out loud, " Thank you. I got it. I would like you to go be free now."
I am a realist. The scars from our wounds hurt sometimes. Even years after. I choose to look at it as life reminding me of something I had forgotten. Isn't that beautiful?
My dears, I hope you find the courage to let the hurt in, sit with it, and then be free of it.
