It means we can't do it for someone else.

To "let go" is not to cut ourselves off,
It's the realization we can't control another.

To "let go" is not to enable,
But to allow learning from natural consequences.

Which means the outcome is not in our hands.

But to care "about."

To "let go" is not to fix,
But to be supportive.

To "let go" is not to judge,
But to allow another to be a human being.

To "let go" is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes,
But to allow others to affect their own Destinies.

To "let go" is not to be protective,
It's to permit another to face reality.

To "let go" is not to deny,
But to accept.

To "let go" is not to nag, scold or argue,
It's not about self-criticism or harsh judgements,
But, instead, to search out our own shortcomings
And correct them. 

To "let go" is not to adjust everything to our desires
But to take each day as it comes,
And cherish ourselves in the moment.

To "let go" is not to regret the past,
But to grow and live for the present moment and future.

To "let go" is to fear less.

To "let go" is to love more.
