Let It Go! - Part 2

Sometimes, you’ve just got to let it go!

Understand that you can not chase down every lie. There are some people in your life that lie about any and everything. There is no truth in them, and you must come to the realization that they are just not going to tell the truth. There comes a time when you have to take what they say with “a grain of salt”. In other words, view what is said with skepticism. Don’t take it literally.

But, please - for the sake of peace - stop challenging them on every lie. Sisters (brothers), if you know that your sweetheart, husband or significant other does not always tell you the truth, make it up in your mind that you will challenge him (her) on an issue only if it is important or relative to the situation at hand. If it is not that deep, decide what you will deal with and what you will let go. Please understand me - you can not live peaceably with anyone if you are always confronting trivial issues. Choose your battles!

Sadly, most of us have been programmed to believe that we have to deal with e-v-e-r-y issue - regardless to how big or small it might be. We have been programmed to believe that if we do not confront the situation then we are weak or being made a fool of. If we are going to win in this game , we must …

1) reprogram our minds to choose our battles wisely, and

2) stop grumbling about everything.

Someone once said, “Don’t grumble and stay. Grumble and be on your way.” The late Teddy Pendergrass said it best in the song , “I Think I Better Let It Go”.
