“Letting go" doesn’t mean we don’t care.
"Letting go" doesn’t mean we shut down.
"Letting go" means we stop trying to force outcomes and make people behave the way we want them to.
"Letting go" means we give up resistance to the way things are, for the moment.
"Letting go" means we stop trying to do the impossible, controlling that which we cannot-and instead, focus on what is possible—which usually means taking care of ourselves.
And when we "Let Go", we do so in gentleness, kindness, and love, as much as possible.”
