Letting Go!

Rating: 4.5
To let go does not mean to stop caring,
it means I can't do it for someone else.

To let go is not to cut myself off,
it's the realization I can't control another.

To let go is not to enable,
but allow learning from natural consequences.

To let go is to admit powerlessness, which means
the outcome is not in my hands.

it's the realization I can't control another.......................... the need to control is not conducive to a harmonious relationship. You both must want the same thing. A truthful statement in a lovely poem.
