“To let go of judgement does not mean that you don’t see what they do. It means that you recognize their behavior as a form of conditioning, and you see it and accept it as that. You don’t construct an identity out of it for that person.”- Eckhart Tolle, philosopher

No matter what anyone has done to you, it is not about you. It is about the person. Don’t focus on it. The best way to let go of what people have done to you is to surrender to life. Why is that? Because you can’t control other people, but you can control yourself.

Live your life. Keep going forward. You are here to live your life, not to think about what other people have done to you. You are here to celebrate what the Lord has done for you, not to dwell on what someone has done to you. Remember, you are bigger, stronger than what someone has done to you. If you want love to come into your life, you must let go of hate. If you want happiness to dominate your life, you must let go of negative thoughts. If you want to move your life forward, you must let go of your old self. Try it and see what happens.
