70+ best letting go and moving on quotes.
How often have you heard the words, ''let go, and move on with your life?'' Every one of us at some point in our lifetime has had to either let go and move on from someone or something. It isn't always easy to just let go and move on. Especially situations that involve deep emotional pain like betrayal, disappointment, heartbreak, abuse, and death. I believe that everyone should be allowed to heal at their own pace, even if the situation that they're in is one that we've experienced. It doesn't mean that because I overcame a situation within the shortest time it will be the same for someone else.
We are sometimes selfish in the way we relate to someone who is hurting. There are times when our first utterance isn't that of a compassionate nature, but rather us highlighting our individual strengths and what we would have done, had it been us in that situation. This does more harm than good to the person who is hurting and we too can delay their healing with the things that we say.
I remember hearing the story of a domestic violence survivor. She said the first time she opened up to a friend about being abused. The first words were, why did you stay so long? I would not have allowed that to happen to me. Her friend made her feel as though all that happened to her was entirely her fault because she had been in the situation for so long. What she would have wanted from her friend was a little emotional support or a few words of encouragement to say, I'm glad that you've finally found the strength to walk away.
If you know someone who's hurting over someone or something. As best as possible try to be compassionate towards the person. At the end of the day, they know what it is that they are going through. It doesn't matter if you've been there and done that. Respect the progress that they are making to heal their hurt.
Never compare your strengths to the way someone else is handling a situation. Don't belittle the progress that someone is making to get back on their feet. Healing is a journey and we all walk at a different pace. Below I've compiled a few quotes with the hope that they might help someone to learn to let go and move on with their life.
“Letting go doesn't mean that you don't care about someone anymore. It's just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.”
“If people refuse to look at you in a new light and they can only see you for what you were, only see you for the mistakes you've made, if they don't realize that you are not your mistakes, then they have to go.”
“What if you could pick one day of your life, and everything would stop changing, every day would be similar and comparable to that one day, you'd always have the same people with you? If you could do that, would you do it? Would you pick that day and make that choice? We crave for things to stop changing, we wish that things would never change. But if we got what we wanted, there are so many things that are better, that we would never, ever know about. Sure, things would stay the same as that one wonderful day, but then there would be nothing else out there, ever. So can you remember the very first day when everything really did begin to change? Is there a thing that can remind you? Mine is a blue rose, and that's when everything began to change because that's the day I began to believe in things I never believed in before; the day I found three blue roses. Think about your first day of change, can you remember all the new heights you've soared since that day? All the new people? All the better things and times? Would you throw all of that time away? I wouldn't. Instead, I want to finally accept all the things that I couldn't change, which led to me being right here, right now. Maybe we all carry around inside us one day we wish we could keep forever, something we wished never did change. It's time to let go of that day, and soar.”
