    Have you ever felt, if you could somehow take

    back your words immediately after you made that foolish comment to someone you cared, said something to the one you loved or written to someone you liked? If you are unsure about it, our regret about it itself that always follows, as surely as the night follows the sun, is an...

    Catharsis

    I spoke, I let the words flow from my heart to my mouth. I let the feelings that I held for so long become words that will reach your eyes. My words flew like captured birds, outwards and onwards. They breathed the clean air and almost smiled back to me as they flew away from me...

    Our stressful, pain-filled experiences are not

    caused by people or events but by our reactions to them. And yet, if we will honestly examine the way we presently question our defeats, here’s what we see: we are still desperately seeking answers that serve only to correct the surface or exterior conditions. We are still...

    I Am Letting Go

    How do you walk away from someone you love And take the road of friend; Can you reroute the course you have taken And start over once again? I don't really want to let you go But inside me I know I must; The times we've loved . . . the times you've left My heart says...

    I'm letting go of people

    who constantly let me down or disappoint me. I'm getting rid of those who tend to bring me down. Letting go and moving on. If you don't hear from me, you're part of my problem! Farewell.....

    Letting go of the evil bondage

    that was on me. Letting go of unforgiveness, letting go of the past. Going through a spiritual cleanse by CHRIST. Want to start healing others including my mom, preaching, hearing GOD better, want visions and being able to prophesy etc.

    Letting Go And Moving On

    I have made this my time. My time to deal with all that is painful, examine it, and put it away.This is my time to heal, to face my demons and my fears. My time to remove those toxic people and circumstances from my life, and move on. Too much wasted time, too much wasted...

    I had a dream we were more

    than that, but it was nothing more than a beautiful dream. It's now time to wake up, face reality and let go of the dream. Goodbye my friend, thank you for the dream. It was beautiful while it lasted.

    One of the hardest lesson in life is letting go.

    Whether it's guilt,anger,love,loss or betrayal. Change is never easy. We fight to hold on and we fight to let go.

    I learned many years ago

    that the essence of life is letting go.Birth is a letting go by the mother.Parents have to let go of their children as they grown up and we have to let go of relatives and friends when they die. It is no use trying to cling on. Letting go is what it is all about.

    I guess the only time you let go is

    when your life is about to change, I think that moment is coming for me finally. If I ever see the girl I'm trying to let go again, I don't know how il feel but she's pushed me away too much for me to even be bothered at this point in my life.

    Letting Go

    After I wrote my recent story, "the affair", I felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. I reclaimed myself by taking those hidden diaries out. I let go of the secrets and the shame, the hiding of things, and the pretense of a good marriage. All those things made me...

    At times, we feel confused,
