Reader comment on Brother David Steindl-Rast's passage ...

Giving Up is Different From Letting Someone Down

 This one deeply resonates right now.  So many aspects of my life are shifting right now:  personal, professional, relationships, health, meaning, etc.  It's been a practice to give up - or let go - without putting down.  It goes for others.  And it deeply goes for myself as well.  How can I love myself, care for myself, support myself during this time of major shift?  How can I give up on the patterns that no longer serve me without beating myself up for having held on to them for so long?  I come back to love.  Love and kindness.  In thought, in words and in actions.
