Must Read Quotes About Moving on and Letting Go

Moving on and letting go are really hard things to do. Some of the most difficult times in my life were when I needed to move on from a situation or let go of a relationship. I’m very sentimental so walking away has never been easy for me even when I know it’s in my best interest. Here are some quotes about moving on and letting go that I love and have helped me get through some difficult times.

“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.”
–Lao Tzu

“You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve, would’ve happened… or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on.”
-Tupac Shakur

“It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.”
-Nicholas Sparks

“Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.”
-Oprah Winfrey

“When we think we have been hurt by someone in the past, we build up defenses to protect ourselves from being hurt in the future. So the fearful past causes a fearful future and the past and future become one. We cannot love when we feel fear…. When we release the fearful past and forgive everyone, we will experience total love and oneness with all.”
-Gerald G. Jampolsky

“Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.”
-Steve Maraboli

“Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?”
-Mary Manin Morrissey

“Renew, release, let go. Yesterday’s gone. There’s nothing you can do to bring it back. You can’t “should’ve” done something. You can only DO something. Renew yourself. Release that attachment. Today is a new day!”
-Steve Maraboli

“Let go of certainty. The opposite isn’t uncertainty. It’s openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides. The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow.”
-Tony Schwartz

“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

“Life moves forward. The old leaves wither, die and fall away, and the new growth extends forward into the light.”
-Bryant McGill

“Suffering is not holding you. You are holding suffering. When you become good at the art of letting sufferings go, then you’ll come to realize how unnecessary it was for you to drag those burdens around with you. You’ll see that no one else other than you was responsible. The truth is that existence wants your life to become a festival.”
-Osho

“There’s a trick to the Graceful Exit. It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, a relationship is over – and to let go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its value.”
-Ellen Goodman

“Accept the fact that you will grow apart from people you’ve had significant relationships with. Understand when someone no longer positively affects your life. Let them go. Don’t hinder your growth”
-Unknown

“If you spend your time hoping someone will suffer the consequences for what they did to your heart, then you’re allowing them to hurt you a second time in your mind.”
-Shannon L. Alder

“You can love them, forgive them, want good things for them…but still move on without them.”
-Mandy Hale

“If someone doesn’t care to accept you, respect you, believe in you, don’t hesitate to move on and let them go. There are many who love and appreciate you just the way you are.”
-Amaka Imani Nkosazana

“You really don’t have to burn any bridges to let go… You don’t have to destroy anything. You can just decide to cross over and move on.”
-Marta Mrotek

“We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there.”
-Pascal Mercier

“Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.”
-Lyndon B. Johnson

“Forget what hurt you but never forget what it taught you.”
-Shannon L. Alder

“In the process of letting go, you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself.”
-Deepak Chopra

“Sometimes the door closes on a relationship, not because we failed but because something bigger than us says this no longer fits our life. So, lock the door, shed a tear, turn around and look for the new door that’s opened. It’s a sign that you’re no longer that person you were, it’s time to change into who you are. It’s going to be okay.”
-Lee Goff

“Take all the time you need to heal emotionally. Moving on doesn’t take a day, it takes lots of little steps to be able to break free of your broken self.”
-Tere Arigo

“Letting go does not mean you stop caring. It means you stop trying to force others to.”
-Mandy Hale

“Just because someone has been in your life for many years, doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be a point at which you finally decide to let go.”
-Wilfred James Dolor

“Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.”
-Octavia Butler

“We must be willing to let go of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”
-Joseph Campbell

“Sometimes it takes a heartbreak to shake us awake & help us see we are worth so much more than we’re settling for.”
-Mandy Hale

“I demolish my bridges behind me…then there is no choice but to move forward”
-Fridtjof Nansen

“The only thing a person can ever really do is keep moving forward. Take that big leap forward without hesitation, without once looking back. Simply forget the past and forge toward the future.”
-Alyson Noel

“Letting go may sound so simple, but rarely is it a one-time thing. Just keep letting go, until one day it’s gone for good.”
-Eleanor Brownn

“Letting go is not getting rid of memories. Memories will stay, they always do. Letting go is making sure that the pain associated with the memories goes away.”
-Arti Honrao

“Make it a rule of life never to regret and never to look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy; you can’t build on it; it’s only good for wallowing in.”
-Katherine Mansfield

“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 Lander

“Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward.”
-Victor Kiam

“Letting go. Everyone talks about it like it’s the easiest thing. Unfurl your fingers one by one until your hand is open. But my hand has been clenched into a fist for three years now; it’s frozen shut.”
-Gayle Forman

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
-Walt Disney

“When someone you love says goodbye you can stare long and hard at the door they closed and forget to see all the doors God has open in front of you.”
-Shannon L. Alder

“Holding on is believing that there’s only a past; letting go is knowing that there’s a future.”
-Daphne Rose Kingma

“You’ve got to make a conscious choice every day to shed the old – whatever “the old” means for you.”
-Sarah Ban Breathnach
