Are you burdened down trying to help someone? Have you tried and tried but your efforts did no good? Then let go, and let God deal with them. You say, I don’t know how to let go and I don’t want to let go. Know this; there are times in life when you must let go and let God deal with the situation for your own sanity.

Trying to help time and time again can wear on your mental and physical wellbeing. Letting go doesn’t mean you do not care about the person, it just means you cannot do it for them. Letting go isn’t about cutting yourself off; it is about realizing you didn’t cause the problem, and you cannot cure it and you cannot control it.

Letting go is about letting others learn from their consequences. It is admitting that this time the outcome is not in your hands. It is not about blaming or trying to change the other person; but having the wisdom to recognize you can only change yourself. It is caring about, rather than caretaking. It is being supportive without trying to fix them, and instead of judging, allowing them to be a human being in our society.

Letting go means instead of trying to adjust everything to your own desires, you take each day as it comes and cherish each moment. It means instead of criticizing and regulating, you learn to focus on the purpose to which God has called you. It means not looking back with regret on the past and focusing instead on growing and living for the future. Letting go is about fearing less and loving more.

One of the happiest times in life is when you discover the courage to let go of what you cannot change or control. It has been said “if you want to fly on the sky, you need to leave the earth. If you want to move forward, you need to let go the past that drags you down.” So, let go and Never Give Up! Never Give Up! Never Give Up!
