Sometimes ‘letting go’ is so important, as it may be the only choice you have. You must have often heard people saying to you “let go of this feeling/emotion/relationship/job/person etc., it is not worth your worries/attention/tears/love”, to which your response usually must have been “what do you know? It is easier said than done!”… Ah! And now you are probably smiling thinking back in time! But yes, letting go is sometimes really important – maybe because it is the only choice you have or, maybe, because holding on is causing you or others more hurt, pain or burden.
Let us talk about, as an example, letting go of a relationship that once meant a lot to you. It could be with a very dear friend or a special someone. At some point you realize that this relationship is giving you more pain than the joy you once expected it would. Or you realize that you are doing each other more harm than good by being together. Or you realize that you, or the other person, have lost interest or the spark that there once was. Or you realize that it is, put simply, ‘not meant to be’. Whatever your realization is, now you know that the only choice, or probably the best thing to do, is to ‘let go’. But because of the feelings involved, or the emotions invested, you are finding it hard to do so.
One of the reasons for this inability in letting go could be that, unfortunately – thanks to the commercial cinema, especially romantic comedies, they make everything appear so much larger than life really is, even basic human emotions! –, people have formed unrealistic ideas about letting go and moving on with life. Letting go does not necessarily have to end up with people landing in nightclubs hooking up with strangers or in bars with their friends dancing and singing “life is so much fun now that I have moved on” THE VERY NEXT DAY. Although the choice is really yours as to how you want this to be. ‘Letting go’ is a very gentle, peaceful process of pure love and forgiveness towards others and oneself… and the journey begins inwards.
You may ask “how can there be love and forgiveness if the idea is to just let go?” You may be surprised, but love and forgiveness are at the foundation level of this process. Having feelings of revenge, hatred, loathing, envy or disgust means that you are still holding on to it – whatever the ‘it’ may be in your case.
