You will find that it is necessary to let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let them go, let go of them. I tie no weights to my ankles.

C. JoyBell C.

Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.

Ann Landers

People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.

Ray Bradbury

Chronic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment. If you have behaved badly, repent, make what amends you can and address yourself to the task of behaving better next time. On no account brood over your wrong-doing. Rolling in the muck is not the best way of getting clean.

Aldous Huxley

If you want to forget something or someone, never hate it, or never hate him/her. Everything and everyone that you hate is engraved upon your heart; if you want to let go of something, if you want to forget, you cannot hate.

C. JoyBell C.

We must be willing to let go of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

Joseph Campbell

All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.

Havelock Ellis

Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?

Mary Manin Morrissey

I never wanted any of it to change, but that’s not how life works.

Ted Mosby

What wonderful thing didn’t start out scary?

Isaac Marion

In the process of letting go you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself.

Deepak Chopra

It’s never the changes we want that change everything.

Junot Diaz

You may do this, I tell you, it is permitted. Begin again the story of your life.

Jane Hirshfield

No one warns you about the amount of mourning in growth.

Té V. Smith

Part of being human is that we can’t go back, we can only hope that if we come across that moment again we’ll do it the right way.

Jesse Lacey

It’s just how it is sometimes. Things hurt, and they hurt for a long time. You have to fight back, or it wins.

Robin Benway

At some point you just have to let go of what you thought should happen and live in what is happening.


I learned that it was in hard times that people usually changed the course of their life; in good times, they frequently only talked about change. Hard times forced them to overcome the doubts that normally gave them pause. It surprised me how often we hold ourselves back until we have no choice.

Po Bronson

Life is about change. Sometimes it’s painful; sometimes it’s beautiful. But most of the time it is both.

Lana Lang

Stop looking for happiness in the same place you lost it.


Which do you want: the pain of staying where you are, or the pain of growth?

Judith Hanson Lasater

Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.

Raymond Lindquist

There comes a time for departure even when there is no certain place to go.

Tennessee Williams

I had my chance, and sometimes in life, there are no second chances. You look at what you have, not what you miss, and you move forward.

Jamie Ford

You can build a future out of anything. A scrap, a flicker. The desire to go forward, slowly, one foot at a time. You can build an airy city out of ruins.

Lauren Oliver

You can’t keep dancing with the devil and ask why you’re still in hell.


I don’t think I’m going to like it at all. I think it’s going to hurt. But after the hurt I think maybe something good and strong and beautiful will come out of it.

Kathryn Erskine

You can only lose what you cling to.


The mental and physical space we create by letting go of things that belong in our past gives us the option to fill the space with something new.

Susan Fay West

Lovely days don’t come to you, you should walk to them.


Start now. Start where you are. Start with fear. Start with pain. Start with doubt. Start with hands shaking. Start with voice trembling but start. Start and don’t stop. Start where you are, with what you have. Just…start.

Ijeoma Umebinyuo

In the end you can’t always choose what to keep. You can only choose how you let it go.

Ally Condie

Nothing ever ends poetically. It ends and we turn it into poetry. All that blood was never once beautiful. It was just red.

Kait Rokowski
