Book Review: 30 Days to Overcoming Addictive Behavior

Someday, when I am awfully low, I will feel a warmth thinking of how it used to be between us.

‘The Art of Letting Go’

The Art of Letting Go MAIN


Letting go is an extremely familiar concept to all of us. We read about it. We write about it. We talk about it. It’s a notion that we’ve always known, yet we find hard to do.

I was the same as everyone else and also much worse. I’ve always been the kind of person who can’t stop thinking about things. I overanalyze because I’m afraid that I might miss an important detail. I ponder hard, so I can make sense of things that bother me. I drain my brain, believing that I have to figure out things by myself because I can’t count on anyone.

First, I don’t want you to think of those as wrong. There’s beauty in the art of gripping. In holding on so tight. It makes our life bound and held together.

But this year, a wondrous thing happened to me. Someone crossed paths with mine and that has changed me tremendously in ways I don’t even know is possible for me.

No, it isn’t the kind of relationship that you may be thinking.

He has no idea at all with how big of a change his existence has brought upon me. I wish I can tell him how I learned to totally let go of my grip on some things because not everything is meant to be controlled. How I learned to actually breathe because not everything is meant to be ruminated upon. How I learned to shrug off because not everything is meant to be answered.

It’s a big deal because my transformation was almost close to impossible, yet it still happened. Looking back, I almost cry realizing the big leap I have made. I have reached a state that’s much healthier for me.

And I wish the same thing to you.

To you who’s already getting tired of rationalizing everything that’s going on, the art of letting go is just around the corner.

Be open to it.

Be free.
Don’t let this world dictate you on how to think, how to behave and how to feel.
You are your own person.
You are meant to be you.
You are meant to be unique.
Be different.
Be courageous.
As long as you’re not hurting anyone, do what pleases you.
Be a free spirit.

Oftentimes, you’ll be surprised to hear things like “I want to know what you’re thinking. How your mind works. What are you passionate about? What bothers you? I want to see your soul.” Because more likely, they come not from people who are close and dear to you, but rather from new acquaintances. From strangers who miraculously saw the things no one nearby has ever bother to look at.

Each of us has his own “go-to story”.

It can ultimately change our lives, make it better or destroy it… so know yours!
