Insights: Letting Go

Letting Go

This week I thought I would depart from the regular newsletter format and offer you a quotation or verse straight out of Part 1 of our New Insights Life Coach Skills Training Programme.

The author is unfortunately unknown but the message is a powerful one for all those who have difficulty ‘letting go’ of people, situations and things in life (pretty much all of us at some point in time, I guess!)

It’s one of my favourite pieces of inspirational writing and I do hope it strikes a chord with you in the lead up to the season of goodwill.

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 I can’t control another.

To “let go” is not to enable,
but to allow learning from natural consequences.

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 all the outcomes,
but to allow others to effect their destinies.

To “let go” is not to be protective;
it’s 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.
