Let Go and Releasing Control
Like the next writer, I, too, struggle with perfectionism. Perfectionism’s close cousin may be control. Why not write your own Let Go letter, and like me, give up perfectionism and control?
I am letting go of my need to have a perfect family, or my need to make it “look” like I have a perfect family. I’ll stop trying to fix people or situations, as if it’s really up to me anyway!
Note: One hundred twenty-six participants pre-submitted Let Go letters and sentences to be collaged into the painting. The names and some details have been changed to protect identities.
