Learning to Let Go
Beliefnet members talk about what they are trying to let go of in their lives.
We all struggle with the act of letting go--whether it's physically letting go of material goods, emotionally detaching from an old love, or spiritually freeing yourself to the possibilities of a higher being. Learning to let go is the central theme in the new movie "Things We Lost in the Fire." In it, Halle Berry plays a widow coping with the recent death of her husband, who invites his childhood friend, played by Benicio Del Toro, a man struggling with a drug addiction, to live with her and her children. Both of them must learn to let go, she of her pain and he of his addiction. Click through our gallery to see what members of our community are struggling to let go of.
