1. Expand your worldview and leave your habits. Letting go is to deny the imperatives that require us to be perfect, to achieve anything, to always please others, etc. Reduce your bans and instead work on finding what limits your life.
2. Trust the other. We cannot control the actions or thoughts of people around us. Thus, it is better to accept others as they are rather than wanting to change them and even try to “save”. If you let others be themselves, then, with your trust, they will respond to your expectations more.
3. Cultivate openness and adapt to change. Our beliefs are sometimes our worst prisons. The narrower our view is defined, less the number of events and people are there, raising sadness and frustration. If you value adaptation, the change will become synonymous with fun and learning.
4. Free yourself from your negative emotions. Some emotions prevent us from accepting what we cannot change: the hatred, bitterness, resentment, revenge. Be aware that when you stifle those emotions you do not bring anything constructive to your life. You have the power over yourself. If you forgive, you will experience a sense of liberation!
5. Adjust your expectations to events and learn from failure. If you maintain unrealistic expectations that are too high towards others and towards life, you may experience a lot of disappointments. Instead, replace your expectations with trends and preferences. You’ll enjoy each failure, and not mourn but learn to rejoice in the new learning you have and it will bring you closer to success.
6. Do not stay chained to the past. If you constantly dwell on the memories of your failures, your disappointments and your tests, then there are chances that your resentment connects you to the past. This inability to let go can ruin your inner peace. Accept that the past is the best way to enrich your future.
7. Cultivate a positive view of yourself. How often do we refuse to forgive just because of pride, because we say, “It’s not for me to make an effort!” This way of thinking keeps the memory and pain of the offense alive, and we cling to the past. If you cultivate a positive view of yourself, you know that every time you forgive, you do it first for you and not to show others or as a “force” that you have to prove to anyone.
