There are people who can walk away from you.

     And hear me when I tell you this!
             When people can walk away from you:
                     let them walk . . .

                     I don't want you to try
                     to talk another person
                     into staying with you,
             loving you,
             calling you,
             caring about you,
             coming to see you,
             staying attached to you.
     I mean hang up the phone!

When people can walk away from you
let them walk.
     Your destiny is never tied
     to anybody that left.

     They came out from us that it might be made
     manifest that they were not for us.
     For had they been of us,
     no doubt they would have continued with us.
1

People leave you
because they are not joined to you.
And if they are not joined to you,
you can't make them stay.
Let them go.
If they were joined to you,
they would not be walking away.

     And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person
     it just means that their part in the story is over,
     or that they believe it is over,
             and in the story that is their life
             only they can tell at some point
                     whether they were correct in that, or not . . .
                             this is their freedom . . .

     And you've got to know when people’s part in your story
             is over.
             So that you don't keep trying to raise the dead . . .
     you've got to know when it's dead.
You've got to know when it's over.

Let me tell you something . . .
I've got the gift of good-bye.
It's the tenth spiritual gift,
I believe in good-bye.
It's not that I'm hateful,
it's that I'm
faithful,
and I know whatever God means for me to have
He'll give it to me.
And if it takes too much sweat
I don't need it.

             Stop begging people to stay.
                             Let them go!

                                     But have it clear in your mind
                                     that you are simply
letting them go:
                             accepting the logical flow
                             of
their decision;
                     you don't want it,
                     you didn’t ask for it,
             you didn’t decide it,
             you didn’t make it happen.
     Going is
their choice
     and loss . . .
Let It Flow.

If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to
you and was never intended for your life,
     then you need to . . .
             LET IT GO!

If you are holding on to past hurts and pains . . .
     LET IT GO!

If someone can't treat you right,
     love you back,
     and see your worth . . .
             LET IT GO!

If someone has angered you . . .
     LET IT GO!

If you are holding on to some thoughts
     of evil and revenge . . .
             LET IT GO!

If you are involved
     in a wrong relationship or addiction . . .
             LET IT GO!

If someone won't treat you with the respect,
that you, and all people, deserve . . .
     Let it go
             for remember that those
             who do not respect themselves,
             have no respect for others.
                     It’s not about you
                     it’s about them . . .
                             LET IT GO!

If you are holding on to a job
     that no longer meets your needs
     or talents . . .
             LET IT GO!

If you have a bad attitude . . .
     LET IT GO!

     If you keep judging others
     to make yourself feel better . . .
             LET IT GO!

             If you're stuck in the past
     and God is trying to take you to a
     new level . . .
LET IT GO!

     If you are struggling
     with the healing of a broken relationship . . .
             LET IT GO!

When it comes
to the important things in life,
     it is only necessary to ask
     someone something
once.
             If it isn’t responded to,
             and yet you continue to ask,
                     you are turning
‘asking’
                     into begging or nagging;
                             reducing yourself to pitiful
                             immaturity in a futile,
                                     destructive game.
                                     Let It Go!

             If you keep trying to help someone
     who won't even try to help themselves . . .
LET IT GO!

     If you're feeling depressed and stressed . . .
     LET IT GO!

             If your ego and pride are leaving you stalled . . .
                     LET IT GO!

If there is a particular situation
that you are so used to handling yourself
     and the Creator is saying
     'take your hands off of it,'
             then you need to . . .
                     LET IT GO!!! 2

                     Stop
             whatever
             You
     are
     doing . . .

Based on a contribution by Deborah Canivet
Stop, think, and appreciate this
opportunity for personal and spiritual
growth . . .

and remember that bridges
     are
two-way links;
             do not burn them all:
             and if a door’s been shut,
                     leave a window open.

                                     Let It Flow.
Many who walk or run away,
want to escape their inner demons,
pain, hurt and turmoil.
     They always hurt the ones they love,
     and who love them:
             the ones they really shouldn’t hurt at all.

                     They are imprisoned and blinded by their pain;
             punishing themselves, and lashing out at others,
     pushing others away,
hurting all the wrong people;
looking in all the wrong places,
     forfeiting their freedom and happiness;
     and self-destructive to the end,
             hurting themselves most of all.

                                     Sometimes being a friend
                             means mastering the art of timing.
                     There is a time for silence.
                     A time to let go
             and allow people
     to hurl themselves into their own destiny.
And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.

Love is not rude,
it is not self-seeking;
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
It does not boast,
nor does it gloat.

It always protects,
always trusts,
always hopes,
always preserves.

Love is kind,
love is patient.

     Love cannot be ‘taught’,
     it cannot be ‘talked’;
     you can only “do” Love,
             for Love simply
‘is’.
                     It is the most powerful force in the universe;

                     A bond that can’t be broken;
             so strong it transcends everything,
             and overcomes anything.
     That’s love – unconditional;
     if you have it . . .
NEVER LET IT GO!!

                                     Let It Flow . . .
