The Art Of Letting Go: 5 Ways You Can Make It Less Painful

The Art Of Letting Go 5 Ways You Can Make It Less Painful

When it comes to letting go of something or someone you love, difficult and heartbreaking doesn’t even begin to describe it. Letting go of something that is extremely precious to you will always be a painful experience.

Letting go is never easy, but sometimes you need to do it for your own good. The good news is, there are a few ways you can make this change easier and less painful for yourself.

5 Ways You Can Make Letting Go Easier For Yourself

1. Let go of things that are not meant for you.

Certain things that cause you nothing but pain is not worth having. Having this mentality or faith will help you overcome the reluctance that comes with making a decision of whether or not you should let go. If you keep on fighting for the things that have no place in your life, you will be hurting yourself more and more.

2. Holding on to toxic things will cause more pain. 

When you reach a point where you feel “stuck”, take that as an indication that you need to let it go. It might be a very painful process but you have to be strong and power through. If you have been working extremely hard to make something work, but it isn’t, then you have to accept the fact that it is not meant to be.

But nothing is a waste of time, even if it feels like it is because we are here to make mistakes and learn lessons to grow as individuals. If you continue to hold on to things that are toxic for you and your well-being, then you are just setting yourself up for a lot of pain, misery, and failure.

There is a certain power in the art of letting go of toxic things and toxic relationships, as you get to build a new future where there is a lot of happiness, contentment, and positivity for you. 

3. When one door closes, another one opens.

When you are going through something painful, it is very normal to think that you might never be able to get through it. And that’s okay because you are human at the end of the day. What you need to keep in mind, is that when one door closes, another one always opens. This kind of attitude and thought process will help you move on from the painful situation faster, and you will also emerge as a stronger person.

You have so much potential, so much of talent and so many exceptional things to give back to the world. When you have to close one door and leave it behind, you don’t realize that there are so many more doors waiting for you to be opened. Even if some endings are painful, they are not endings after all; they are new beginnings to a beautiful life. 

4. Get rid of the fear that you will never feel happy again.

One of the biggest reasons why you may hold on to something or someone is because you think that you will never get to experience those feelings again. But does that mean you will hold on to it, despite knowing that it is doing you more harm than good? What if something better is waiting for you out there?

If you look back at your life, you will find yourself laughing at certain situations when you thought you would never move on from someone, or how you held on to something so tightly only to realize later that it was wrong for you. It is the natural tendency of human beings to always focus on the negatives, even when they are surrounded by a thousand positives.

    Incredible. I have felt the, last few years that i was enrolled in a course entitled learning to let go, of people, expectations and just plain and simply my need to control, need for security, need to try to help my adult kids not make mistakes that will hurt them. it was number 5 though that really got me. My one and only brother let go of me many years ago and because he is my one and only brother I have tried everything i know to fix this, to call him back, but the truth is even when he was part of my life, he wasn’t really he was so self-involved; even if he came back into my life, he still wouldn’t really be there. We are polar opposites in our world view, personalities, and values. So it is kind of crazy for me to still hold on, he’s made it clear he doesn’t want me. So I guess what I am really holding on to is my idea of what a brother and sister “should” be to each other, or the idea that being a “good” sister is one who doesn’t let go or give up. Kind of crazy huh. Thanks for the article and helping me see my way through the tall weeds, maybe it is time I let go, not just of my brother, but of the guilt I feel when I even consider letting him go.Which is even more crazy, because how can I let go of someone i really don’t even have in the first place. LOL There i go, Alice down the rabbit hole again.
