The photo takes the subject lightly but it is not really a light subject. It is hard!
This is the hardest lesson I have ever had to learn in my life. There is no easy way. I can give you no insight on letting go. It is necessary though to move on in life. I will probably always struggle with it. I keep using the advise of Eckhart Tolle to stay in the present and asking God for strength. The cross is heavy unless you let go. There is no choice in the matter if you wish to live a life with happiness in it.
