The secret to letting go is the realization that the object of attachment (sadness, fear, wealth, people) was never a part of you. You may have held it close, but it was always outside of *you*. Therefore letting go of that object of attachment will not break you because you existed as a whole before the object and will exist as a whole after the object.
There are many pieces that make up our lives: Moments that break us. Moments that raise and shape us. Decisions we make to hold on. Or let go. People who enter our lives and leave us changed forever. The ones we love, the ones that hurt us, or heal us, or leave us. Sometimes we don’t understand these pieces—or even despair over them. It’s only when time goes by and we look back, that we suddenly can see our whole life like a perfectly designed puzzle. Don’t be afraid of the puzzle piece you’re in now. It will fit perfectly…just like the rest. How could it not? The Designer is perfect.
