Do you often find your past dragging you down, holding you back, and preventing you from moving forward along your path in life? If so, this collection of quotes should be of some help.
Read them, re-read them, and absorb their lessons. Write them on post-it notes and stick them around your home; create a little book of quotes and read some upon waking up and before going to bed; do anything that reminds you daily of the importance of letting go.
You can’t possibly embrace that new relationship, that new companion, that new career, that new friendship, or that new life you want, while you’re still holding on to the baggage of the last one. Let go… and allow yourself to embrace what is waiting for you right at your feet. – Steve Maraboli
Be simple, don’t carry the baggage of the past, open your hands, and let it go. – Debasish Mridha
It’s hard to be clear about who you are when you are carrying around a bunch of baggage from the past. I’ve learned to let go and move more quickly into the next place. – Angelina Jolie
Letting go is the willingness to change your beliefs in order to bring more peace and joy into your life instead of holding onto beliefs that bring pain and suffering. – Hal Tipper
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.
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. – Lao Tzu
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
Before you can live, a part of you has to die. You have to let go of what could have been, how you should have acted and what you wish you would have said differently. You have to accept that you can’t change past experiences, opinions of others at that moment in time, or outcomes from their choices or yours. When you finally recognize that truth, then you will understand the true meaning of forgiveness of yourself and others. From this point you will finally be free. – Shannon L. Alder
I demolish my bridges behind me…then there is no choice but to move forward. – Fridtjof Nansen
Let things go. Release them. Detach yourself from them. Nobody plays this life with marked cards, so sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Do not expect anything in return, do not expect your efforts to be appreciated, your genius to be discovered, your love to be understood. Stop turning on your emotional television to watch the same program over and over again, the one that shows how much you suffered from a certain loss: that is only poisoning you, nothing else. – Paulo Coelho
