Just Learn To Let Go And Watch Life Unfolds Naturally Before You
Is it possible to never, ever worry about life and somehow breeze through every moment?
We naturally want things to go our way. Learning to stop resisting and to flow with life would probably be one of the most difficult things to master throughout our personal growth journey.
Sometimes things can happen that are difficult for us to accept. Instead of letting it be just as it is, we fight, we rant, we stress over it even though it’s clearly beyond our control.
Not being in control isn’t a pleasant feeling. You want to be in control. You want to know exactly how things should work out. You want to have a deep sense of certainty and not be caught off guard in any situation.
And so you plan, you organize, you plot, you do whatever is needed for things, events, and people to turn out exactly as you have imagined it.
But that’s not always the case. You will get upset. You will get disappointed. People will hurt you. Plans will fail.
And in case you haven’t notice yet, life happens around us all the time and everywhere. It’s not something we can create exclusively for ourselves.
If you are resisting something, you are feeding it. Any energy you fight, you are feeding. If you are pushing something away, you are inviting it to stay.

So what do you do when life slaps you in the face? Just when you thought how great everything is turning out, one area starts to majorly suck.
Immediately your old friend, the inner critic showed up. Self-pity, jealousy, and anger all hit at once, taking you deeper and deeper into that hole.
The key to your happiness and peace of mind largely depends on how you react to things you cannot control.
The moment you feel the energy rising, whether it be anger, frustration, or helplessness, take a few deep breaths. Never underestimate the power of breathing because it can calm you down and to avoid a complete freakout.
What about the problem, you asked? You will figure that out later.
That’s what it means to flow with life.
Instead of resisting the situation, you accept them for what they are. You look for alternative ways and adjust your plans accordingly. You learn to accept that it is what it is right now.
When you resist, you’re interrupting a natural universal flow. Being in resistance is one of the most uncomfortable places to be, no doubt. It’s a sign you’re pushing against your true self. Life feels like an uphill battle all the time. You struggle to feel happy.
When we stop resisting what we don’t want to feel and embrace the state that we are in, we move through whatever it is so much faster and find our way back to truth and clarity.
