Have you ever heard the saying, “It’s never too late to let go of someone you love for their happiness?” I am sure there have been times when that thought has crossed your mind.
Maybe it was as a child when you had a crush on that teacher who made you feel smart, or it may be when a loved one left you and caused turmoil in your life.
No matter what the reason is, the idea of letting go of someone you love for their happiness is very appealing.
Let’s face it, in this world there are a lot of people who seem to be more interested in having a good life than in building strong relationships.
The news is filled with stories about married couples who are now divorced because of extramarital affairs, all the time we hear about people who have died alone and with no hope of ever coming back to earth.
Is this the life you want for yourself and/or your family?
Can you see yourself putting up with this kind of life for any extended period of time?
When you were a child did you ever think about the happiness of life? Of course not, you only focused on what you had to do to survive.
And if anyone ever asked you what your intentions were you could only reply, “To survive.” That’s what life was like for children.
If you were to ask me what my intentions are today I could only reply, “To live a happy life.”
We all want love and happiness in our lives but how do we know if we really have to have these things? Happiness is a choice.
It can be acquired or it can be given. Someone can acquire happiness from another while other people are blessed with happiness just as easily as they can acquire it.
When we are willing to let go of someone we love for their happiness we often experience a sense of peace that lifts us right back into the reality of the world.
Peace comes from within and it is sometimes hard to define. Many people describe it as knowing that when everything is going right you have to count on something else to go right as well.
This is especially true in difficult times such as these.
Life is often filled with fear and worry. If you are not living in a place of constant peace then there is plenty for you to worry about.
You worry about the state of your health, your family, your job and so on. You worry about failing in your business, being betrayed, and so on.
People that are successful in life know that there is always something more for them to work toward. They remain positive even in the face of adversity and continue striving forward.
Most of us are more concerned with what we will lose than what we have already gained.
We often think that we have already arrived at what we want while other people live in constant struggle and disappointment. We also have the ability to think about and change things for the better.
The power of letting go of someone you love for their happiness may be just what is needed in order to secure a more successful, fulfilled and happy life for yourself and those around you.
Happiness does not have to feel like work. It can come to be a natural and easy way of life.
We all want to be happy and secure in our relationships. There is an old saying that says, “if you are happy and secure in who you are then others will be too.” This is very true.
The happier you are and the more secure you are the easier it becomes to be happy and secure in others and in life in general.
Think about it. People who are happy and secure with themselves generally make others around them feel good as well.
Letting go of someone you love for their happiness is one small way that you can take control over your own feelings and emotions.
We all have difficult times in life and some times we have to let go in order to move forward. Happiness does not have to come at the expense of someone else’s happiness.
It doesn’t have to come at the expense of your own.
Happiness is not an emotion. Happiness is a choice. If you let go of something that makes you unhappy in your life you will be able to find happiness in another place.
Remember that by the time you reach old age many of us will have had experience of happy moments throughout our lives.
Happiness does not have to be found outside of our own life. Letting go of someone you love for their happiness is a great way to start your own happy journey today.
