Let Go

To "Let Go" does not 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 I can't control another

To "Let Go" is not to admit powerlessness,
Which means the outcome is not in my hands.

To "Let Go" is not to enable,
But to allow learning from natural consequences.

To "Let Go" is not to try to change or blame another
It is to make the most of myself.

To "Let Go" is not to care for,
But to care about.

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 destinies.

To "Let Go" is not to be protective,
It's 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 cherish myself in it.

To "Let Go" is not to criticize and regulate anybody,
But to try to become what I dream I can be.

To "Let Go" is not to regret the past,
But to grow and live for the future.

To "Let Go" is to fear less,
And love more.
