When we are young we are often encouraged to keep trying, to hold on, to never give up, to persevere. All noble endeavours indeed. We learn to believe that holding on is brave; a sign of integrity & true character.
But there are also times when we need to give ourselves permission to give up, to relinquish, to let go, to clear space in our hearts & our minds for new adventures & create the conditions for growth.
Letting go is not just about loss & saying goodbye, it’s also about finding the courage to accept that change is an inevitable part of life & allowing yourself to move forward. The ability to let go, to throw up your hands & simply say ‘No more’ is a liberating & powerful gift.
Ahhh…let it go.
