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.

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.

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.
Let go now
If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.
At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.
We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
