LET GO AND LET GOD

LET GO AND LET GOD–
GOD, HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND:
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 ENABLE, BUT ALLOW LEARNING FROM NATURAL CONSEQUENCES.
TO “LET GO” IS TO ADMIT POWERLESSNESS, WHICH MEANS THE OUTCOME IS NOT IN MY HANDS.
TO “LET GO” 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.
TO “LET GO” IS NOT TO FIX BUT TO BE SUPPORTIVE.
TO “LET GO” IS NOT TO JUDGE BUT TO ALLOW ANOTHER TO BE A HUMAN BEING.
TO “LET GO” IS NOT TO PROTECT, IT’S TO PERMIT ANOTHER TO FACE REALITY.
TO “LET GO” IS NOT TO DENY BUT TO ACCEPT.
TO “LET GO” IS NOT TO NAG, SCOLD, OR ARGUE BUT INSTEAD TO SEARCH OUT MY OWN SHORTCOMINGS AND CORRECT THEM.
TO “LET GO” IS NOT TO ADJUST EVERYTHING TO MY DESIRES BUT TO TAKE EACH DAY AS IT COMES AND CHERISH MYSELF IN IT.
(taken from the 12 Step Prayer Book written and compiled by Bill P. and Lisa D.)
