Let go

To "let go" does not mean to stop caring.
It means I can't do it for someone else.
To "let go" is not to cut myself off.
It's the realization I can't control another.
To "let go" is not to enable.
But to allow learning from natural consequences.
To "let go" is to admit powerlessness.
Which means the outcome is not in my hands.
To "let go" is not to try to change or blame another.
It's to make the most of myself.
To "let go " is not to care for.
But to care about.
To "let go" is not to fix.
But to be supportive.
To "let go" is not to judge.
But to allowanother to be a human being.
To "let go" is not to be in the middle, arranging all the outcomes.
But to allow others to affect their own destinines.
To "let go" is not to be protective.
It's to permit another to face reality.
To "let go" is not to deny.
But to accept.
To "let go" is not to nag, scold or argue.
But instead, to search out myown shortcomings and correct them.
To "let go" is not to adjust everything to my desires.
But to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.
To "let go" is not to criticize and regulate anybody
But to try to become what I dream I can be.
To "let go" is not to regret the past.
But to grow and live for the future.
To "let go" is to fear less and to love more!

Thank you all very much!!! But I didn't write this poem. I have no idea who did, and I shouldn't take credit for it either.

The reason why I posted this poem is that a few months ago, my heart was broken, and then a friend gave me this poem to let me feel better and it did. He had no idea who wrote it either. Anyway, just by reading this, I hope everyone can benefit from it.

I too agree with all of you readers that the this poem is awesome!!!
