L is for Let Go!


Dear Diary,
For L I recommend : Let go!

We are often so attached to things, that we don’t like to leave them behind, while in some cases it’s good in some others it can prove detrimental to our physical and psychological health.


I have seen a few people who are unwilling to let go of their emotional baggage, carrying it around with them, not realizing that it’s slowing their progress down. Some who hang on to their past and forget about the future awaiting them. While some others stay in a relationship, because they are too afraid of the consequences if they walk out.

Hence my recommendation to one and all is Let go! We have one life and it makes absolutely no sense living it by holding on to things that have no value. It’s ok to learn lessons from the past but carrying that emotional baggage is not worth it. Let go of the people who hurt you because they do not deserve you. As Oprah says :


As far as love goes, this quote says it best :




Letting things go,

The Sunday Visitor

  1. I've let go of many people and things, but I have some more emotional baggage I need to let go of. With this particular baggage, I need more time. Time heals my wounds.

  4. I think letting it go can be very healthy, but sometimes it is so hard. The human brain is terrible at doing what it's told.

  6. Sadly I know a guy who just passed away from cancer - and he was just this type of person. The type of person who never let anything go. He was furious with life, with the doctors who didn't diagnose him soon enough, with everything. It was a horrible way for him to be on his way out. :(

  7. Very well said. Easier to agree to than to do sometimes. But important.

  8. This is so true. Never truer than during my divorce many years ago - arguing over money and possessions after losing our love? The time spent on that negative energy didn't make sense. Gave it all to him, endured several years of emotional healing and moved on. Best thing I could have done for myself, and lesson learned early that has served me well through the years.

    Thanks for visiting today. I hope you are enjoying A to Z as much as I am. If only I had time to follow 2,000 blogs :-)

  11. We often forget that we must look at the present and the future through the windshield/windscreen and at the past only in the small rearview mirror.
    If the rearview mirror is made bigger, we will have a very highly restricted view of the present and the future.
