43 Perfect Letting Go Quotes For Moving On

You have to let go.

You can’t continue holding onto things in the past – whatever they may be – because you think that things won’t be better in the future. The truth is, letting go is one of the hardest things in the world. But oh my is it worth it.

Because when you finally let go, you have the chance to live in the present moment – the only moment you truly have. So dive into these letting go quotes and move forward. Move on. Move into the future.

Sometimes love means letting go when you want to hold on tighter. | Melissa Marr

But who can say what’s best? That’s why you need to grab whatever chance you have of happiness where you find it, and not worry about other people too much.

Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure. | Stephen King

Everything I’ve ever let go of has claw marks on it. | David Foster Wallace

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. | Marilyn Monroe

We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better. | C. JoyBell C.

If you didn’t love him, this never would have happened. But you did. And accepting that love and everything that followed it is part of letting it go. | Sarah Dessen

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

It hurts to let go. Sometimes it seems the harder you try to hold on to something or someone the more it wants to get away. You feel like some kind of criminal for having felt, for having wanted. For having wanted to be wanted. It confuses you, because you think that your feelings were wrong and it makes you feel so small because it’s so hard to keep it inside when you let it out and it doesn’t coma back. You’re left so alone that you can’t explain. Damn, there’s nothing like that, is there? I’ve been there and you have too. You’re nodding your head. | Henry Rollins

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

One ought to hold on to one’s heart; for if one lets it go, one soon loses control of the head too. | Friedrich Nietzsche

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

You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It wont 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. | Joel Osteen

This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up.

Relationships take up energy; letting go of them, psychiatrists theorize, entails mental work.
