Letting go is not the same as giving up. Giving up is when you are aiming for a worthy aspiring goal and you do not persevere to achieve it. Letting go, on the other hand is not hanging on to things that no longer serve you.
For many of us, letting go can be difficult. You find things linger on after you ‘let go’. This is because old habits – whether emotional, mental or physical – can be hard to break. In some sense, it is a loss of security for us, no matter how unhelpful it is. When that happens, go back to the foundation of why you have let go. The stronger the foundation, the easier and quicker the shed off period.
Letting go can also be liberating; you find that in the end, you are a stronger, freer person because of it.
