Learning to Let Go (M0003)

We've all wished we could change something from the past. Maybe you missed out on a job you really wanted because you made an error on the application. Mistakes happen! But clinging to things you have no control over can leave you well and truly stuck in the past. And this can make you upset, stressed, and withdrawn. It can stop you from moving forward in a happy and optimistic way. You have to learn to let go.

Letting go of something doesn’t mean getting rid of it altogether. It means finding peace with it, because clinging to pain doesn’t allow it to ease. Reliving past experiences or conversations will never change them, and hoping things were different will not make them so. This course will look at what letting go actually means, and how your life can improve if you learn to let go of things that are already out of your control.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

•Define “letting go”
•Understand the negative consequences of holding on to things you can’t control
•Identify challenges in “letting go”
•Recognize processes that will help you to let go of negative thoughts

Why take this course?

We’re all guilty of overthinking past events – an argument or a misjudgment, perhaps. Learning to accept that these things are in the past and deciding to move forward is a key life skill, and one that can make us feel free to live the lives we want to. So come on in, and learn how to let go.
