To Let Go
(To Release, To Surrender, To Forgive)
To let go is not to stop caring
Its recognizing I cannot do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself off,
It is realizing 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 fight powerlessness,
But to accept that the outcome is not in my hands.
To let go is not to try to change or blame others,
It is to make the most of myself.
To let go is not to care for, it is to care about.
To let go is not to fix, it
is to be supportive.
To let go is not to judge.
It is to allow another to be a human being.
To let go is not to try to arrange outcomes,
But to allow others to affect their own destinies
To let go is not to be protective,
It is to permit another to face their own reality.
To let go is not to regulate anyone,
But to strive to become what I dream I can be.
To let go is not to fear less, it is to love more.
