Acceptance is the Answer
I used to think the term ‘letting go’ meant that I had to end a relationship or throw something away. Over the last few years, I’ve learned that letting go isn’t quite so literal. Sometimes the pain or frustration that we experience comes from wanting a person or situation to be something other than what it is. What if we could experience the benefits of letting go through acceptance? Here’s what it could look like… Silence Your Stories. We often assign stories or meanings to things that have happened in our lives to help us make sense of them, especially when the circumstances are unfavorable. Letting go looks like silencing those stories that we tell ourselves and accepting situations or relationships for what they are instead of the story or meaning we’ve assigned to them. Release Expectations. When it comes to relationships in our life, we tend to hold our loved ones and leaders to an expectation that we’ve decided is right for who they should be. Unfortunately, our expectation of who someone be, may not be who they actually are. We only end up upsetting ourselves by expecting otherwise. Letting go looks like accepting people for who they are instead of expecting them to become who we want them to be. Ideas or Beliefs. The more I live, the more I’ve come to learn that right and wrong are relative. This is also the case for other ideas or beliefs such as what is expensive versus what is affordable, or what one considers to be a lot versus what another believes is not. When we hold tight to a belief about a thing, it limits our possibility and potential for growth. Letting go looks like accepting that more than one reality can exist at the same time depending on the person or the experience. This week I challenge you to practice acceptance as a form of letting go. Liberate your life from the self-imposed restrictions that are holding you back and keeping you swirling in emotions or thoughts that you don’t want. Who or what do you need to accept by letting go of the stories, expectations, or beliefs that have been getting in the way?
