Holding on is believing that there’s a past; letting go is knowing that there’s a future.
—Daphne Rose Kingma
Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.
Never love something so much that you can’t let go of it.
I realize there’s something incredibly honest about trees in winter, how they’re experts at letting things go.
I think that you never fall out of love with somebody, you just let go and move on.
Nothing in the universe can stop you from letting go and starting over.
There’s an important difference between giving up and letting go.
The most difficult aspect of moving on is accepting that the other person already did.
Pain will leave you, when you let go.
I think every girl has that a guy she has trouble letting go of.
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need.
Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.
Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.
The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.
Cut yourself some slack. One of the biggest regrets most people have about their 20s is that they didn’t enjoy them more. And I’m not talking about “buy more expensive dinners, take another trip to Thailand” type of enjoyment. I mean having the ability to take a deep breath and sip coffee in the morning knowing that you have done, and are doing, your best.
