I have had to let go of fear to find faith.
I have had to let go of sorrow to feel joy.
I have had to let go of anger to feel peace.
I have had to let go of hatred to offer forgiveness.
I have had to let go of pride to obtain forgiveness.
I have let go of facades to find those who love me as I am.
I have had to let go of expectations to see an alternate perspective.
I have had to let go of false friendships that caused me to doubt my individual worth.
I have had to let go of insecurities that spread like disease and poisoned my progress.
I have let go of assumptions that left me feeling superior to some and inferior to others.
I let go of someone I loved. Someone I wanted to marry. I let him go to find his happiness, and later found my true soul mate.
I let go of a corner office and comfortable living and replaced it with tea parties and monopoly money. I have never been wealthier.
I have let go of hurt and heartache that drug me to the lowest depths and nearly cost me everything. And as I did, I felt the unconditional love of God.
I have let go of doubt and replaced it with conviction. It drives me to be better every day. And when I fail, I let it go. And I try again.
