Letting go is not to cut myself off; it is the realization that I cannot control another.

Letting go is not to enable, but to allow learning from natural consequences.

Letting go is to admit powerlessness, which means the outcome is not in my hands.

Letting go is not to try to change or blame another; it is to make the most of myself.

Letting go is not to care for, but to care about.

Letting go is not to fix, but to be supportive.

Letting go is not to judge, but to allow another to be a human being.

Letting go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes, but to allow others to affect their own destinies.

Letting go is not to be protective; it is to permit another to face reality.

Letting go is not to deny, but to accept.

Letting go is not to nag, scold or argue, but instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.

Letting go is not to adjust everything to my desires, but to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.

Letting go is not to criticize and regulate, but to try to become what I dream I can be.

Letting go is not to regret the past, but to grow and live for the future.

Letting go is to fear less, and to love more.
