Often times there are certain situations that if we let them will take control over us in a negative way, causing us to lose ourselfs or to turn bitter... STOP giving it power to do that!
"It" could mean a person, thing, or a situation. Dont give it the power to control you mentally, spiritually, or physically. Sometimes I, have fed I to negativity giving it the power to take over my mind, my thoughts, my everyday moves. I eventually had to say enough is enough and stop giving it power! Power isn't only gained by having control, power is also gained by losing control, letting go, making peace. When I let go of the negativity or focused my energy on more positive things, there was a shift in my life. I smiled more, laughed more, I felt like myself again. Just because something, someone or a situation has your down, don't let it be the end all be all. Reclaim your happiness, reclaim yourself.
Letting go doesn't mean you don't care about someone anymore. It's just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself -Deborah Reber
