time doesn't heal emotional pain, you need to learn how to let go

  1. Getting You Down
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011

    When life is getting you down,
    And you feel as if you might drown.
    Hold on tight, and start to fight,
    And eventually, you won't want to frown.

    It is not always easy,
    It can sometimes make us feel queasy.
    We can change that, but it'll take a strong hat,
    It's up to you to make your life dreamy.

    So take your life in your hands,
    And make a new set of plans.
    It can be great, if you stop with the hate,
    And make changes every way you can.

    Past hurts move beyond them
    This piece of advice is a hidden gem:
    Once you let go forward you move
    And you will find life will start to improve.

  2. all the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on

  3. Let Go
    Poet:  Julie Hebert, 2011

    Sometimes in life,
    Things don't go your way.
    They make you frustrated,
    And unhappy through your day.

    There are many things,
    That could help you see through,
    To what could be helpful,
    And give a new point of view.

    But sometimes those tricks,
    Are just a misguide.
    And all you really need,
    is to let go and not take sides.

    Lay down and close your eyes,
    And think only good.
    Maybe what's needed is a compromise
    Let go and find yourself in a better mood.

  5. Best Advice
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2018

    There  are times that the best advice
    Is to pick up the pieces and just be nice
    Fighting and screaming does no good
    It just reflects a negative attitude.

    What goes around comes around
    It is a true saying I have found.
    The best advice is to let it go
    And not let your hurt and anger show.

    Most times it is hard to do
    But hanging on and being blue
    Hurts you more than any
    And that is worth less than a penny!

  6. To completely release the pain and move on, think about the ways this relationship made you a better person.  Vishnu's Virtues,  Love After Heartbreak

  7. Letting Go Is A Sure Cure
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2020

    What is the point of hanging on to a grudge
    Who are you to point the finger and be the judge
    Letting go will help you more
    It is, for sure, a great cure.

    What is the point of being mad
    In the end, it is just you who is sad.
    Moving on will help you more
    It is, for sure, a great cure.

    What is the point of trying to force love
    It is like putting on a mismatched glove.
    Set yourself free will help you more
    It is, for sure, a great cure.

    What is the point of not forgiving
    It is like missing out on living.
    To forgive will help you more
    It is, for sure, a great cure.

    For all of the things that upset you so
    The best cure is letting go.
    Move on, don't get stuck
    Holding on and in a rut.

  8. Move On -  positive people do not dwell on setbacks however grave they are. They move on.

  9. To Let Go
    Author Unknown

    To "let go"  does not mean...
     to stop caring, it means I can't do it for someone else.

    To "let go" is ...
    not to cut myself off, it's the realization I can't control another.
    is not to enable, but to allow learning from natural consequences.
    is to admit powerlessness, which means the outcome is not in my hands.
    is not to try to change or blame another, it's to make the most of myself.

    To "let go" ...
    is not to care for, but to care about.
    is not to fix, but to be supportive.
    is not to judge, but to allow another to be a human being.
    is not to be in the middle arranging the outcomes, but to allow others to affect their own destinies.

    To "let go" ...
    is not to be protective, it's to permit another to face reality.
    is not to deny, but to accept.
    it not to nag, scold or argue, but instead to search out my own shortcomings, and correct them.
    is not to adjust everything to my desires but to take each day as it comes, and cherish myself in it.

    To "let go"...
    is not to criticize and regulate anybody but to try to become what I dream I can be.
    is not to regret the past, but to grow and live for the future.
    is to fear less, and love more.

  10. Habits We Need To Let Go Of
    by Catherine Pulsifer, 2021

    Before we speak
    We should always think

    Before we judge others
    We should realize there is more than we see

    Before we think about us
    We should think about helping others

    Before we spread hearsay
    We should remember how stories get twisted

    Before we react in angry
    We should take a deep breath

    Before we indulge in self-pity
    We should open our eyes and see others in worse situations

    Before we criticize
    We should think of how we could encourage

    Before we focus on the negative
    We should always look for the good.

    Before we accept failure
    We should always look at what we have learned

    Before we think all hope is gone
    We should pray and believe in the power of prayer.

    By letting go of the before's
    We will find the opening of new doors.

    Habits can limit our life
    To the point life is full of strife.

    Letting go and changing our attitude
    Will take us to a higher aptitude!

  11. Forget It
    Poet: Jesse E. Campeil

    Why grieve o'er errors of the past?
    Need such our future sway?
    The past don't make us right or wrong.
    'Tis what we are today.
    Old "Yesterday" has lived its life
    Why linger 'mid its sorrow?
    It bears no part in future joy.
    Forget it for - tomorrow.
