Let It Be.
May 1, 2020
How can we Just Let It Be? I know you are hurt. It hurts. Living with the pain from someone who has hurt you every day can be excruciating. So how can we just let it go and move on?
We have to make the decision to let it go. Things that have happened and circumstances we found ourselves in don’t just disappear on their own. You need to make the commitment to “let it go.”
We’ve all been hurt. There isn’t anyone alive today who hasn’t experienced some kind of emotional pain.
It hurts. I get that.
It’s in the past and it’s something that cannot be changed. So how do we move on from it, so it’s not constantly sitting on our shoulders and holding us back from living our lives completely?
By expressing your pain and your responsibility if any to what happened directly to the other person, venting to a friend, writing in a journal or sending a letter, (that you may or not send), whichever way makes you feel better is the way to let it go. Don’t let your pain become your identity.
Focus your life on the present and the joy and happiness it brings you. Embrace the people who are right in front of you every day instead of focusing on the people from your past who no longer want to be a part of your life, or whom you no longer want to be a part of your life. If they remain in your life, expressing to them your pain and allowing forgiveness and forgiving is the first step to healing emotionally and allowing that person to remain in your life for whatever purpose they hold.
Family member, friend, co-worker, etc. You have to decide how you want them to be in your life.
In every moment, you have that choice — to continue to feel bad about another person’s actions, or to start feeling good. You need to take responsibility for your own happiness, and not put all that power into the hands of another person. Why would you let the person who hurt you in the past have such power, right here, right now? It’s your life – how do you want to continue living it? Forgive them and yourself. Just let it be gone from your shoulders and heart forever and move on…
Take back your own power and become whole again! Live your best life!
It's A Beautiful Thing!
