Letting Go is Not Easy but Important to Do

by Jane Gilgun

Arch, St. John’s Wood, Collegeville, Minnesota, USA

There’s probably no other way to live a full and meaningful life than to let go of things that hold us back, such as self-doubt, self-recrimination, and fears of not being good enough. Obviously, when we have hurt someone else, we have to make up for it. So, too, if our beliefs are hurting ourselves, then we have to do something. We have to let the beliefs go. Letting go is not easy. Here’s a poem by Esther Fibush. I wish I had written it. Letting go cannot be done with the flick of the wrist Like tossing salt over one's shoulder to ward off evil. Oh, no, it is done with great pain-Like giving birth, or the slow death of a long illness Esther Fibush, Message to the World, no date. Letting go happens with the love and support of others. Twelve step groups can provide this kind of support. So can groups at men’s and women’s centers and in churches, synagogues, and other religious organizations. Identifying and reworking beliefs are hard on the emotions. Other people provide a sense of safety to do these tasks. Letting go results in emotional freedom, that indefinable lightness of being.
