Happiness is Letting Go

One of my favorite films of all time is Fight Club, there are a lot of reasons I love this film and one of the sentiments that the narrator expresses is how Tyler Durden has, “the ability to let what truly doesn’t matter slide.” Now my friends this is a level we all should aspire to in our lives. We spend far too much time focusing on things that truly don’t matter. How many times in our day do we get angry at someone in traffic or at the grocery store, how much time to we spend mulling over this or that off-hand remark made by someone, we truly don’t care about.
We do this all of the time, let situations that don’t truly matter bring us down, let those we don’t carry about impact our mood. We’ve been programmed since childhood that appearances matter, we watched our parents worry about others opinions. We need to learn how to break this cycle, to worry less about what other people think. In the end, we live alone, we die alone, along the path of our life the only person who we have to lay down with every night is ourself, we have to be ok with ourself and we need to learn to approach the philosophy of Tyler Durden, and let what truly doesn’t matter slide.
Give yourself a hug tonight and have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
