Letting go isn’t about forgetfulness. Letting go doesn’t mean to hate and want nothing to do with those you once held dear; for to hate is to say that you’ve been wrong, you made an ill choice. To hate is to say you’ve been deceived. To hate is to know they weren’t worth loving, much less worth burning your being with hate.
To let go is to make peace with one’s mind that what’s yours would never be taken away. It’s to fare them well with a prayer on your lips and appreciation in your heart. Letting go is to forgive.
