"Let Go and Let God!" 12-Step Program
This adage is easier to say than do.
Why is it so hard to let go?
I think part of the difficulty is that letting go often feels like giving up. Giving up is not letting go. It is really giving up your own power to change your thinking, feelings or actions/choices about a situation that is outside your control. That's why giving up leaves you feeling defeated and powerless. You are giving up on your power to change.
Letting go is an active choice to release what you never had any control over in the first place... time, nature and the thoughts feelings and choices of other people. These are out of your hands. That's where letting God comes in. Handing off the responsibility to a "Power Greater than One's Self". This is not a religious concept, just reality. A business owner, friend said it best, "Everything got a lot easier when I stopped being CEO of the universe."
