The Courage To Surrender: Psychotherapist Reveals the Power of Surrender and Acceptance

March 20, 2024

Nancy Colier shares a powerful insight about surrender in a Psychology Today article, When It's Time to Let Go of Control and Surrender.

“Surrender happens when we know that we don’t know.

It arrives when we know that we cannot think or see our way through where we are. We don’t have the answers.

In true surrender, we don’t know if what’s to come will be better or worse, more comfortable or more awful.

All we know is that we can’t do it this way, the way we’ve been doing it, a moment longer.

Surrender happens when it can’t not happen.”

– Nancy Colier, Author of Can’t Stop Thinking: How to Let Go of Anxiety and Free Yourself from Obsessive Rumination
