4 Best Tips for Letting Go

Holding onto pain and resentment doesn\’t fix anything. We cannot change the past, no matter how hard we try. There comes a time where we must learn to start letting go of that which no longer servers our greater good. If you find it difficult to let go of bad relationships, grudges, or the past in general, then these best tips shared below may help you.

Here Are 4 Best Tips for Letting Go:

  1. Stop! Take a deep breath… and another

Remind yourself that this too shall pass. You are never given anything you cannot handle. What is the lesson that you can draw from this experience? Then take another deep breath and give gratitude for the situation or person that has brought you this new understanding.

  1. Hindsight has always been a great teacher for me

After witnessing all the ways that I grew after hardships, I began to notice that the challenges that arrived at my doorstep were a calling for me to expand, grow, and heal. Now, instead of waiting for hindsight, I trust that in my surrender to what IS, I will expand, grow, and heal. I gift myself with compassion as I navigate it, and trust and faith are my companions as I move through it.

  1. Letting go is about making a conscious decision to stop dragging our past into our present and future moments

One way that helped me let go of past pain and trauma was to change my perspective and my story around my experiences. For example, when I chose to imagine my father as an innocent child who was carrying around a lot of unhealed wounds, I was able to have compassion for him and forgive him for his abusive parenting. Forgiving him does not mean I condone his actions. However, understanding that he did the best he could with the tools he had made it a lot easier to let go with love.

  1. Nourish yourself with authentic self-care especially during trying times

When you feel you have hit bottom and want to move on, it may feel out of reach at first. Cultivating nurturing care during times like this looks exactly like setting boundaries, saying no, moving on, and letting go. Do things that bring you ease and comfort while listening and extending to your own needs first. When I answer my need for self-care versus ignoring this during times of challenge and change, the outcome is life-affirming to me which is extended to others.
