Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone any more. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.
I think that the power is the principle. The principle of moving forward, as though you have the confidence to move forward, eventually gives you confidence when you look back and see what you’ve done.
To let go is to release the images and emotions, the grudges and fears, the clingings and disappointments of the past that bind our spirit.
One of the hardest things to do in life is to let go of what you thought was real and see it for how it really was.
Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.
We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the life that is waiting for us.
If you bury the pain deep down it will stay with you indefinitely, but if you open yourself to it, experience it, and deal with it head-on, you’ll find it begins to move on after a while.
It’s better to end something and start another than to imprison yourself in hoping for the impossible.
Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
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.
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.
You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won’t happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, “I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.”
Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.
