The truth of letting go

Letting go of something does not mean that it is gone from you forever, but that you will no longer allow it to control you. Hating something because of what it symbolizes to you is a way of holding on to the thing itself. Sometimes it is time to let it go, and letting it go means letting it be. Don’t hate something that is a part of you because that hate is caustic and will eat away not at the source, but at the container.

Let the past be in the past. Let it rest where it belongs. And if it is called to mind, let go of the hate and fear that gives it the edges that cut. You are not the person that you are were, you are not the person you will become. In this moment let the memory be only that.
