My God, please don’t let me get attached to what is no longer intended for me. Don’t let me get attached to something or someone you plan to take back from me.
I know that your projects are mysterious but, until you reveal them to me, please help me. Don’t let me hang on to what I’m supposed to forget. Don’t let me fight for what I need to free myself from. Don’t let me desire what will end up destroying me. Don’t let me love those who have to break my heart.
Because I get attached easily and bind myself firmly to things, so please don’t let my mind desire things I can’t handle, don’t let my mind lead me to want things I don’t want don’t need it or don’t benefit me. Please don’t let my heart hope for people who don’t expect me. Don’t let my heart languish for those who have left. Do not let my heart love those who do not wish to remain.
Please don’t let me get attached to things that will keep me awake at night, people who will leave me full of questions, places I am not supposed to be.
But, let me forget the things that should never have been, give me the faith and the strength to understand that I am better without them. Give me wisdom so that I realize that I deserve better and that I would be happier elsewhere with someone else.
Otherwise, give me the necessary tolerance so that I can accept that I will not have the things that I desire, that I will not love those that I want to love and give me the patience to wait for your blessing and your gifts.
But for now, please don’t let me get attached to what’s not good for me. Don’t let me invest in things or people I am doomed to lose. Do not let me desire what is not for me. Don’t let me build a future around the ephemeral.
