The Art of Letting Go Again

The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.

Hey, guys welcome back to another post! And welcome to the month of February! As you know I am reading a new book every month and if you haven’t already checked out my post for the book of the month of January you can go ahead and click below.

I want you to get caught up on what we are reading. I’m trying to choose books that can help me grow as a person. Although I love books that are entertaining, I’m at a point in my life where I am trying to grow mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

I would also like to welcome everyone who is new to my page! If you aren’t already subscribed to my blog, please do! I promise you will not regret it. Without further ado, I would like to introduce you to this month’s book choice.

The book that I have chosen for this song is called the art of letting go! Not only have I done a post on this topic before, when I was really going through it. But one of my favorite artists, Mariah Carey, has written a song about it and I think it expresses exactly what that saying means.

So chapter 1 is basically expressing exactly the emotions you go through when it is time for you to let some things go. 

Chapter One

“Anything that feels forced or harder than it should be or causes you pain and distress is not meant for you. ”

Excerpt From: Thought Catalog. “The Art Of Letting Go.” Apple Books.

The chapter is also talking about how if you are at a point where you’re being forced to let go, that is because that thing white person has already let go of you. This is a hard pill to swallow because you have become so used to having that thing or person. 

There have been multiple instances where I should have let go of something or someone and I didn’t. The longer I hold onto the thing the more they kept hurting me. And I held on out of fear that I would never find that thing again. Letting go is a very hard thing to do I’m not trying to make it seem like it’s easy. It’s very hard but it is also very powerful. You have to be a strong person to let go.

Ask yourself, is there something that you are holding to at this moment in your life that you should be letting go of? What was something that you had to let go of that you really did not want to go? Let me know in the comments below.
