Letting Go to Let God

Sometimes "letting go" can be challenging, especially when you have been violated in a way that has caused trauma you have yet to heal from. The pain and anger can feel overwhelming, making it difficult to imagine a life without the weight of those experiences. It's important to acknowledge that healing is a journey, and it takes time to process and release the emotions tied to the trauma.


One of the first steps in letting go is recognizing that holding onto the pain and anger only prolongs the suffering. It's important to give yourself permission to feel the emotions and to seek support from trusted friends, family, or professionals who can help you navigate through this process. They can provide a safe space for you to express your feelings, validate your experiences, and offer guidance on how to heal.


Another crucial aspect of letting go is forgiveness, although it may seem difficult or even impossible at times. Forgiveness doesn't mean condoning what happened or forgetting the pain you endured. It's about freeing yourself from the burden of carrying resentment and anger. Forgiveness is a personal choice, and it can be a gradual process. It starts with acknowledging the pain and deciding to release the negative emotions tied to the trauma. This doesn't happen overnight, but with time and self-compassion, it becomes possible.


Finding healthy coping mechanisms can also aid in the healing process. Engaging in activities that bring you joy and peace, such as journaling, painting, meditating, or practicing mindfulness, can help you connect with your inner self and promote emotional healing. Surrounding yourself with positive influences, engaging in self-care routines, and prioritizing your well-being can also contribute to the process of letting go.


Lastly, it's important to remember that healing is not linear. There will be ups and downs, and some days might be more challenging than others. Be patient with yourself and allow yourself to grieve, heal, and grow at your own pace. Remember that you are not defined by your past experiences, and you have the strength within you to overcome and move forward. Let go to let God heal, set free, and deliver you so you can be the best version He created you to be!
