Letting go is hard but necessary in life. Otherwise you are stuck. Faith is the key. Have faith in whatever comes your way. It is a plan of somesorts. Acceptance of what is, is part of letting go. It is first step in letting go. Accepting what you can change and what you cannot. Forgiveness also allows you to let go. But all this is a process so allow time for this process. Thanks for sending that, it was great!

All my life, I've been the "leader", the "do-er", call me the "Initiator" even. In other words, if I/we (spouse included) don't make the phone call to invite people over or to stay in touch ~ the phone doesn't ring at our end. Yet, everyone loves to come over when we call. You know 'us' types, we are the ones to open our homes for meals, card games, pool parties, etc. Do you think people invite us over? No, but they love coming to our place...

How can (I) let go when it is so painful knowing that these people whom we call will just disappear into the mist? (I) would be terribly sad and lonely knowing that they don't have enough ambition in their little finger to lift it to send an email or push some buttons & call.

If everyone "let's go" (as in certain situations I'd love to do), wouldn't the person you are letting go from reciprocate in kind & let you go too? Thereby, no one making an effort b/c they see us letting them go? It is a nasty little circle that seems to provide or encourage solitude. I can just here in their minds "Gee J used to invite us over a lot, haven't heard from her in a while, what's gotten up her backside? If she doesn't want me around, then fine, I'm gonna let her go."

Perhaps in some instances, it is not "letting go" but backing off and making contact with certain people less often, and letting go of the pain they cause us by not responding?

thank you for the profound words...so much of what i needed to hear this morning....such a simple thought...if it does not benefit you...let it go...i see so many people resistful of letting go...too comfortable in their patterns of misery to take the risk of something new... i recently was awakened to what you are saying...and to anyone who is in the process...fight through it for it is the most worthwhile challenge.... i feel so empowered...and free...from standing up for myself and removing myself from a situation that was not healthy for my soul....I currently am reading a book by Paramahansa Yogananda called To be Victorious in Life... it is helping me some...very short easy read.... also a book that has carried me through these times is You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay...definately one to get your hands on if you are in a stagnant funk. Well, again help please thank you for the strong words....

Juanita,
I hadn't read this before I posted on your thread "Someone Wants to Hear from You... This may be your last chance!" and had to laugh ... I guess in know you fairly well, huh?

What you shared here is something I have felt/experienced MANY times - because, like you, I am the type of person that brings people together. I am a very social, outgoing person and LOVE to plan parties, events, etc. It's just who I am. I have to remember sometimes that NOT EVERYBODY IS LIKE ME, and therefore may not have it in them to do this. Being on social committees, I have actually had conversations with people about this topic - and some people have shared with me that they admire that I can do this, but they are just too shy. (I have actually helped some people one-on-one come out of their shell and plan events when they have asked me to - and purposely stood in the background and allowed them to take full credit for it. And the events were hits, and helped the person build confidence in themselves.)

Where I start having a hard time is when people "expect" things from others, without giving "anything" back, and don't appreciate what people have given them ... and these people are out there. I call them takers. They usually are the ones that nit-pick and criticize, but are never willing to put in any effort. They want to know what you can do for them, and it becomes apparent that it is "all about them" and they do not have your best interests at heart.

Then there are also people that simply have decided that we are not compatible enough and therefore stop calling. And that's ok too, because I feel the same way myself sometimes.

That's when I pull back, after putting in the thoughts I shared on your other thread.

I understand the concept of letting go, but how do you do it? In highly charged, emotional issues that keep creeping into your consciousness on their own, how do you really let it go. I'm all for doing it; it sounds so healthful, but I don't know a practical way to put it into practice.

Beenajerk,

You words speak volumes to me. I do not know how to let go either.

How can I "let go" of the (emotional) pain someone caused me? Does this mean I forgive & forget? I'm afraid that will allow them to walk right in and do it again. I keep my hurt around me to prevent anyone from hurting me again.

So how do I let go?
Just open up and trust again?
That is scary ~ it speaks of a world of opportunity to have history repeat itself.

I can only "let go" so much, then I stop.
