Are you getting affected by somebody else's opinion about you? Do those opinions keep on pondering your mind, ruining your work and life balance? To let go such thoughts is easier said than done. We are affected easily by anyone saying anything to us, or hearing something about us, or somebody’s behavior which is not good towards us. Why does an external person make us feel bad, miserable, helpless, sad, depressed, unwanted or a good for nothing. Letting go, can also be for things not meant for us but, what we keep on desiring limitlessly. These desires can ruin the present and make the future worst. Letting go of relationships, which is the toughest at times, makes us feel weak and broken, but these are the times when we should stand up for ourselves and look for a beautiful future.
If we can't let go of thoughts, relationships or things means, we are not in control of our mind. Somebody else’s deeds and thoughts control our minds. This will never let us live peacefully and we will continue to attract the negativities like hatred, fear, guilt, misery and agony. So it is very important for us to learn how to let go.
Letting go can take place only when we have a stable and balanced mind. With a balanced mind we are aware of what we are doing, or what we are saying, what we want and most importantly what we don’t want.
