Learn to let go of what you can’t control

Learning to let go of things you can’t control is a critical life lesson! It would save so many people from a lifetime of torture if they learned this. It’s imperative to realize that you can’t change the past or other’s behaviors.

You can only control your actions. Although some people never take control of their lives, because they’re so worried about everyone else!

For instance, if someone wants to leave you or they can’t treat you right, let them go. Besides, it’s much better to be alone than with someone who makes you feel bad.

Yeah, it might hurt for a couple of weeks. But, someone is out there who really wants to be with you. So, stop wasting time with people who don’t.

1. Choose now to let go

Getting over the past begins with the choice to finally release it. Besides, holding on to what happened doesn’t help, and wishing things were different won’t change them. So, it’s best to let it go.

Furthermore, tightening your grip on it will only destroy you.

“Why let go of yesterday? Because yesterday has already let go of you.”– Steve Maraboli
If you have a belief about how your life “should be,” then let that go too. Life doesn’t follow your rules, and you’ll be able to cope much better if you realize this.

“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.”

Understanding

The first step in forgiveness is to understand "why" someone acts the way they do. What are they trying to protect? What are they afraid of? What basic skills did they learn (or not learn) from their family of origin?

Understanding "why" breeds compassion and helps loosen the ties that bind us to blame.

1. Denying your habits

Denying your problems in hopes that they’ll disappear over time is a terrible habit. While time does help to ease the pain, deep down, it still hurts because it’s not solved.
