Letting Go Letting God

One of the most difficult things I have had to learn in life and sobriety is how to Let Go and Let God. In some circles and some circumstances it is called Tough Love.

With Christmas literally just around the corner it is most difficult to let the things that matter most to you in life go with love, and the more you love that person or thing the more difficult it is to let it go even though you are sometimes left no other choice.

What I am beginning to find is that when this happens the mind races with questions of Why? Was there something else I could have done or said or expressed? We look to these questions to find answers to why we acted or chose the paths we did. We look to find why we had to do what we had to do.

In some instances we find answers that we did not want to realize. Sometimes the answer was that we were wrong. Sometimes, in my case we learn that we did all we could and we were left no other choice than the action we choose. And that is the hardest nut to swallow. For when we learn that there was another option we can go back and do whatever is in our power to make it right. But when our choice was the right and only choice it becomes so very painful to accept. Especially when you would do anything and everything in your power to change it, but you can't.
