We all have a fear of losing something or someone that we want in our lives. We create expectations of how we want things to turn out, so we try to control them.
Sometimes we have to accept how things are instead of holding on to how we want them to be.
When we hold on to things we can’t control, it can cause a lot of stress, sadness, and unhappiness. It can also keep us stuck thinking and living in the past.
Holding on keeps us from learning lessons, growing, living our best lives, and allowing things to happen as they should.
If we want to be happy and free, we need to learn to let go of things we can not control.
We get attached to things... people, outcomes, places, or material things. The reason we get attached to them is usually because we are afraid that we will lose them.
We fear that losing the things that we want will cause us to feel unhappy. We fear that we can not survive without them.
Society has programmed us to believe that having the things we want, the way we want, will make us happy.
Letting go means that we have to allow ourselves to release our attachment to these people, places, or things.
That does not mean we will lose them. It means that we have have faith that the things that are meant to be a part of our lives will be and the things that are not will not.
Life is made up of experiences that are meant to teach us important lessons. If we refuse to let go of something or someone, we fail to see what life is trying to teach us. As a result, we feel depressed, confused, unhappy... stuck.
Letting go is very hard, I know. But in the end it is what is best for our lives. Happiness does not come from other people, places, or things... It comes from inside of us. It is something we create when we let go of the things we can not control and accept what is.

Love yourself enough to let go of ANYTHING that does not make your heart feel love. For love is the meaning of life. It is what we were created to experience. It comes naturally...
Pain and suffering on the other hand, comes when we choose to hold on to that which was not meant to be...
