Just Let It be...


Last few days I had been avoiding people (even my family..!!!) because there was something that was bothering me a lot. I spent all my time the last few days waiting for a chance or the break that would make it okay. But there was always some reason not to feel good and it was hard at the end of the day.

I needed some distraction or a beautiful release. So finally I decided to call up my friend because I thought she would make it easy for me (its always good to talk to friends when you are upset), she could make me feel empty and weightless :) :)

And Trust me... she had a mantra to deal with things which are beyond our control.
"Let it be" she says.


She offered no advice, she did not attempt to give suggestions and she did not even pass judgements about whether I was doing the right thing or whether something else ought to have been done. She did not sympathise and did not say "Life is unfair" or that the other person was wrong or that it is a bummer.

She just listened patiently instead and she said, "Let it be."


And you know what? Surprisingly it worked...!!!


So, the next time, when things go wrong, do not send out negativity into the universe.


Just let it be.


Do nothing.


Breathe deeply. Relax. Drink a glass of water (or hot chocolate). Go to a place which fills you with peace and comfort. Call a friend who exudes positivity.


But mostly, Just let it be :) :)

I agree sis..there are certain situations in our lives where struggling to find the answers to our questions will only leave us frustrated..sometimes we just have to Let it Be or Wait..for some answers are beyond our control.

I can relate because a lot of times I have been in this situation of waiting sis.Just don't pressure ourselves too much..sometimes it helps when you just be happy and contented of what we have now and just let it be..go on with the flow of life..and move on :)

*hugs*..I miss you sis..whatever you are going through now..it will surely pass..always hope and pray for the best..each day always brings to us a new chance to hope :)

Think thats why the Beatles made the song :
Let It Be :)

Breathe and trust yourself in that everything is fine, no matter how caotic it seems, then you will begin to relax.

That is a truly beautiful picture.

Let it be is such great advice and when one follows it then one has a life with less stress and worry. Love the Beatles song and maybe when you need a reminder of the Let It Be mantra, the song might help.

I hope you are feeling better and are doing well right now by Letting It Be. You are so young and if you follow your friends advice then you will have a long and happy life.

God bless.

Very true words indeed. Sometimes that is all you have to do simply let it be and go on living.

You're lucky to have an awesome friend like that.

MarieHarmony said...

A great friend you have cause she gave you the best advice - sometimes solutions can't be found by thinking about the problem over and over, letting go is the best you can do.
All the times I worried about challenges have not solved them but only offered me black and empty days.
I pray the hard times you are living will pass soon, they will, and that you'll see the light of a new day.
Take care. Sending my love

Much love...

@Nona : Exactly... just let it be :)

@äмän ♥ : Thanks :)

wise and sage advice. though accepting our powerlessness we can only gain some power within ourselves. or something:)
you have amazing friends, which sez something about you.

Kunal said...

I think it is more important to know that when 'Let it be' works and when it doesn't. Sometimes, Let it be can only worsen the situation. But, I am not saying..that we should shower our negativity on to the universe..that rarely helps...a way out to vent our frustration and anger can be many other things. Glad that Let it be worked this time :)

P.N. Subramanian said...

I would simply say, Life is like that. Let it be.

albusclosethedoor said...

It doesn't always work you know. Kinda agreeing with kunal.

ajay said...

Sometimes the world seems just so bleak and hopeless and then I just stop thinking and let it be and it works. And all this while I talk but mostly to myself. That's a very mystical pic. :)
