The essence of “letting go” is non judgement. There are dozens upon dozens of other characteristics needed to truly let go in your life. But the underlying skill that you must master is the skill of nonjudgement. You judge in your mind. You judge with your words. You judge with your eyes. You judge with your work. When letting go, you accept others in your life with love, kindness and non judgement. You appreciate their presence, their moods, their jokes and their reason for being. There is a reason. They are to teach you things about yourself you don’t already know. They don’t know why they are in your life or what they are supposed to teach you either. Let go of needing to know so the learning can begin.
