To let go

To let go doesn't 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 that 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 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 own outcomes. 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 adjust everything to my desires, but to take each day as it comes and to cherish the moment. To let go is not to nag, scold, or argue, but to search out my own shortcomings and to correct them. To let go is not to criticize and regulate anyone, but to try to become what I dream I can be.
