7 Ramadan 2016: Dealing with people … Let it go

Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.-Deborah Reber

RLDefinitely … there is no happiness unless I let go of the small stuff and just focus on my own behavior, goals and dreams.

What good is picking at what people do or say all the time? People pick on themselves and put themselves under enough pressure already.

From experience, picking on what people say or do will only consume one’s valuable time on something that is not only out of our control but also meaningless for us.

Yes, people say silly things … they hurt our feelings … and can be narrow minded, ignorant and simply mean … but other than our ego, what happens as a result?

If our boundaries have been crossed, we should speak up then and there and then let it go.

If our boundaries may have been crossed but could be attributed to anger, mood or ignorance, I believe that the best thing to do is to let it go.

Let us not let these petty things disrupt our path to our dreams and goals.
