Whatever it is in life that has caused you pain… let it go. Right now, this minute release it. You no longer need to hold on to it. It’s in the past and you no longer live there. The years you have spent telling yourself you have let it go, let that go as well. The lies you’ve told yourself, saying that you are okay, yep, let those go too. The reasoning, the guilt, the pain, the torment, the memories, the denial, the feeling that you needed to pay for your mistakes, the story of it all… let it all go. Truly, once and for all… LET Whatever IT is… GO! Don’t, for one more minute let it hold you back from living, from loving, from believing, from wishing, from hoping, from doing, from becoming! Don’t allow it one more second to steal away your happiness, your peace and your life. Just LET IT GO!
If you must… stand outside in the rain and allow it to be washed away from your being and then stand in the sunlight and allow yourself to be consumed with the light of healing. It’s okay to be okay. It’s okay to let the pain go. There is no need to wear it like a badge. I doubt the lessons will ever be forgotten, but the pain is no longer needed… so let it go.
We tell ourselves so many lies and the biggest being that we are okay with how things are, how they have been and how they may continue to be. We find ourselves just getting by. We tell ourselves that we have let stuff go that we clearly have not. We tell ourselves and everyone else that we are okay, when deep inside we still feel that same ol’ pain.
The first step we must take now is by telling ourselves the truth. The truth that part of our past still haunts us and that we have not actually let any of it go.
So here I am, taking the first step… I have spent my life holding on to a number of bad memories, a number of bad experiences and a number of bad choices. Afraid that I would repeat the past, I have held on to these things, not because I wanted to, but because I didn’t want them to come back around. Having them felt like a report card showing I passed that class, meaning I wouldn’t have to repeat it again. So, I held on without realizing I was holding on.
Today…. I begin the process of truly letting it all go. There is no actual class for life or for living. There is no report card at the end of it all that shows how well I did or didn’t do… there is only a life lived. How well that life is lived is up to me. It’s time to start truly living, it’s time to let go.
