There’s a lot of things that can interfere with your happiness. These can be everyday stresses that we encounter in life or personal issues that you just can’t seem to get past. The only way to get over these stressors is to just let it go. Simply let it go. There comes a certain point where you realize that the little things don’t matter and that you should not spend your life unhappy constantly dwelling on things that don’t matter in life. This includes your own negative thoughts that can build and cause stress and drama that doesn’t need to happen. Letting go of the clutter will allow you to find true happiness. Guilt for example, is a powerful emotion that can linger in your brain and prevent you from experience true happiness. I have talked about living with no regrets in a previous blog. Guilt is very similar. They both have to do with the past and letting the past effect the present. Unless you learn to accept the past and let go of these feelings, they will stay around for a long time and you will never truly experience peace.
A lot of the stress in life comes from ourselves and the constant struggle to find happiness. But in actuality, it’s this search for happiness that is preventing us from finding it. The need to have the perfect life and trying to control everything so that it is perfect all while trying to keep everyone else happy and doing the right thing. Being perfect is not only difficult, but impossible. If that is what you are trying to accomplish, you will be disappointed. Let go of the need to be perfect and the feeling that yo need to control everything or else it won’t turn out right. You can’t control everything and trying to will get you no where and bring you a lot of unwanted stress. Happiness will only come to you once you accept both the bad and the good in life and let go of all the thoughts that don’t contribute to your happiness.
“You can’t control everything. Sometimes you just need to relax and have faith that things will work out. Let go a little and just let life be.”
“You cannot erase the past; you must let it go. You cannot change yesterday; you must accept the lessons learned.”
