Let it go and Celebrate!
Someone has rightly said that “Yesterday is already a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision, but today, well-lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope”.
We are all in search of people who love us and validate our overall okay-ness. We want our friends to understand us, we want to feel like we belong, like we fit in. Some of us want to lead, some of us follow, some of us stand somewhere in between. But, we are all always walking towards love, the acquisition of love in all its forms. It is a merry-go-round. Only when we decide to break these manacles, we can achieve true liberation and freedom.
We all are some recombination of our yesterdays. But ever wondered, how your sorrow yesterdays can be affecting your beautiful tomorrows adversely? Yes, you heard it right. We are so often struck in our past experiences that we tend to miss out on our wonderful present and future moments. Past is like a gum, it sticks with you till you consciously decide to let go. It can hamper your relationships with those around you and you need to make efforts to get rid of it.
You need to know why it is so important to let go in life. Everything around you is transient and you need to come to terms with reality that you cannot hold things for long. Be it relationships, success or fame, you cannot expect your life to be like a rainbow every day. Thus, learning the art of letting go becomes indispensable for us as relinquishing unhealthy attachments will give us the power to deal with courageously with tough situations in life. Releasing those negative emotions and influences around you can help you to enjoy precious moments and live life to the fullest.
Embracing what all you have and letting go of what you had should thus be the essence of our lives. When you wish to unlock the key to happiness and love, you need to learn the art of gratitude and forgiveness. Letting go can be broader connotations and it also means not succumbing to meaningless words and wasting your emotions on people and things who don’t love and respect you.
With time, you would realize that not every thing you wish to hold on to is worth your time. Walking away can be really fruitful in such situations. You need to realize that you cannot hold on to things which hamper your mental growth and personality. There is so much you can accomplish in life only if you stop wasting your time thinking about your past and concentrating on your future.
Sometimes the changes we don’t want are the changes we need, to flourish and grow. All you need to remember is that changes need to happen for a reason. They might not be easy but they could make your life worthwhile. Sticking to things which don’t belong to you can be more painful. Hence, true wisdom lies in having faith in what could be and letting go of what was.
Letting go can be a tedious process especially if you were extremely attached to someone but breaking away from the emotional shackles is sometimes necessary. Letting go can become easy if you let go of the fear of losing someone and forgiving them for what they did to you. This way you are letting go of the negative emotions and embracing positivity.
Showing gratitude and forgiving the ones who hurt you can thus lead you to the path of true happiness. Also, you shouldn’t keep waiting for the perfect moments to make positive changes in life. It might be difficult to forgive someone who hurted you to the core. But eventually with time, you would learn that by choosing to forgive, you are giving yourself the power to rule your life the way you want. On the other hand, if you keep holding to those who don’t value your presence in their life, you will never be able to move on.
Hence in a nutshell, letting go is important for your own well being, happiness and peace of mind. Someone has rightly said that “When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or conditioned by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free.” There is no denying the fact that letting go can turn out to be therapeutic for you if you really wish to live a blissful life. Always remember that only you hold the power to let anyone affect you. You cannot change your past and this is exactly what you need to imbibe to be able to live happily and freely.
