Why should you “let go” some stuff in life?
Is there times in your life where you fight to gain control in every area of your life? Do you want to have a say in every situation that you come across? You may be fighting hard to gain control over many areas of your life, starting from your job, family or even things that are very much within your limits like your spouse or kids.
My friend, I wish I had all the control over my life and especially under the areas that directly impact my life. I wish to concede the reality; it is impossible to control your own “self”, forget about controlling others and the situation around you. The sooner you learn and imbibe this amazing fact, you will chase a lot of miseries out of your life.
I must quote a few amazing lines from Khalil Gibran here
“Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday”
In today’s world, we fight for control over our children, finances, the rights in our workplaces and this list is endless. But, have you ever thought that you cannot win all the battles? The desire to win and control are two major factors that ruin peace and harmony in your life. Trust me, they are venomous and could potentially hit you hard in every area of your life.
In simple terms, I suggest you to learn to “let go” on things that are hurting you and killing your joy. It could be anything starting from forgiving someone who has hurt you badly or giving up a bit of control on your spouse and letting them do a few things on their own terms. It may even mean that you may have to reduce that overly possessive feeling that you have on your kid. It could be anything that is binding you, I encourage you to just “let it go”.
Whatever should come your way will definitely be yours at the right time. Don’t go crazy over stuff that are pretty ordinary and lose your focus. Instead, focus on what you can contribute to the world with your life. Work tirelessly on your passions and goals. Let all your energy be channelized towards accomplishing something big in life and make the world admire you.
One of the finest quotes that I have come across says “One of the simplest ways to be happy is letting go of the things that makes you sad”. How true it is? Why should you let someone rob your happiness? Why should you lose your composure for someone else’s stupidity?
Life is a marathon and you need lot of persistence and perseverance to run it. There will be places where you would feel bruised and weary, but you should never fall down. Those weaker moments come to remind you that your journey is not over and the destination is very much at sight, kick on, break free, re-focus and set to conquer the world. Friend, why don’t you learn to “let go”, be it anything that holds you today!
