Letting Go of Things We Have No Control Over


If there is one thing that I have learned through out my life time is to let go of things you have no control over. You don’t know the sleepless nights I have had thinking of why??? Why do things happen to me? Why am I being punished? Why do I have such bad luck? Why, why why? I asked and dwelled on it so much till I made myself sick. I became depressed, had panic attacks and suffered from anxiety. All because I was asking the wrong questions.

The day my mindset changed, so did my life. It was much deeper than that, but for time sake, it happened. I began accepting everything coming my way, good or bad. I let go of those wasteful meaningless questions and started asking real life resolving ones. Like, “ok, it happened, now what?” Who do I need to talk to? What do I need to do to solve the problem? And if there is nothing to solve, then it became, “things happen for a reason.” But the best one that makes me feel at ease is…. “I will leave it all in God’s hands”.
