I am very much a type A personality. However, I have come to the realization that for optimal happiness, I need to let go and allow things to just be. The problem I face is that I don’t know how. I find myself over analyzing situations only to interpret them incorrectly and making a complete mess that never needed to happen.
How do I let things be?
You let things be the same way you let go of something that is too hot for your hands to handle. The same way you throw the skin of a banana into garbage(or compost if that’s your thing) without giving it a second thought. The same way you remove your backpack or your shoes after a long day outside.
If you want a practical exercice, close your eyes and say ‘let go’ to each of your muscle groups starting with the eyes. Do this for about two minutes and notice the difference. Good luck!
one of the most difficult thing that i have ever come accross is to forgive some one and let him go after he has done something unfaithfull to me , i think for shorter terms we can let it go , for that the most important key is patience . we have to make a quick descision to forgive and control our anger and our actions so that we dont do any careless thing in that moment of time. it would be very hard to most of the people , many people wont accept their defeat and try to fight untill the end even they are wrong. it is where the respect and responsibility comes into the picture.my opinion is that if we are able to abandon the respect and pride of ours and able to take quick descisions which can be changed acconding to our needs then we can accept the reality and thus letting the things go their way.
I guess you have to just listen to your heart and go with your feelings, and not with your thoughts. A feeling of immense confidence and trust in life will hit you, and you will accept the present moment just as it is, and not think about what it “should” be.
