Let Go

6:32 AM

Letting go doesn't mean that you don't care about someone anymore. 
It's just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.
-Deborah Reber



You need to let go.

If you're still affected by it, you still feel something for it.
If you still hate someone who has wronged you in the past, you still are under the other person’s “power”.

Let go of hatred, and you release yourself from the prison you have created.
Let go of grudge, and declare yourself free from the other person’s clutch.
Let go of anger, and remove the other person’s power to control you altogether.

You are not your emotions. You are not your feelings.

You are not a slave of your past mistakes.

You are more than that.

Take ownership of your life. Again.

Now.

Learn to let go.

    1. it's not a walk in the park, i must agree. but as they say, if you can't walk, limp. if you can't limp, crawl. what's important is that you don't stay stuck to the mess where you're at.
