I have expressed my thoughts, these love quotes about moving on and letting go, for everyone who at present finds it hard to move on.
They always say that you can’t go back to the past, so keep moving forward. Easy for them to say, but it’s definitely a hard thing to do. Well, your past unfortunately connects your present and future and no matter what has been there, it will somehow affect you on how you see your life now. If there is something left in your past that has been open up until now, being able to start a new may be difficult to do.

Create a distance
Whether it’s a relationship or a personal struggle, detachment is the first thing to do to be able to move on. For people around you that have been a part of your past, you might want to create a space for separation. A break up from a lover would definitely be hard to let go especially if you keep on seeing that person in your day to day life. You might want to change a part of your routine just to avoid seeing that person somehow. Being able to actually forget is the first thing to moving on.
Forgive and Accept
Whatever regrets you have in your past, learn to accept it with all your heart. To anyone who might have caused you pain before, give them a second chance by forgiving them in your heart. When you don’t have to worry about these people, you tend to think of them less. Not that they are giving you such worries in your life at the moment, it’s just a way of closing a bad chapter in life in order to write a new one. Accept that what has been done is done and that change is coming your way.
Reconnect what you think was lost
Have you not done something in your life because you were too enclosed with your past? Now is the right time to do it in order to slowly let go of that past where you have came from. Meet old friends or do activities that fuel your energy and confidence. Find what makes you happy whether being with new or old acquaintances and doing first-time activities.
Write down all your heartaches away
Write in a piece of paper all your worries in your past and present. Write also what you are planning to do in order to improve yourself as a person and also your relationship as well with other people. Burn this paper and say a little prayer to help you be stronger in the days and years to come. Creating this mindset will help you push yourself more to recover from the past and move forward.
Focus on the positive
Your past must have done something positive on you, at least. Find out all these and channel it through on what you have today whether in your career or relationships. Don’t worry on the time you’ve lost but instead on the time you still have to live life.
Some people from the past come back not to remind you of how stupid you have been the entire relationship but to make you realize how much you’ve grown, how far you’ve moved on and how much you’ve learned.
As they always say, your past determines your future. This might be true for some situations especially on the relationships that you have encountered. There are times when we meet certain people in our past, and we feel uncomfortable talking to them and even remembering the past with them. But sometimes, these could be a way to make your realize that indeed, God has His own way of letting you grow to become a better person. Once you look back at your past, you will realize how much has changed and how much have grown because of the decisions before that you have thought is stupid or painful.
Moving on is moving on. End of Story.
Remember that things happen whether we like them or not. Things happen even if we don’t plan exactly the way they should be. How we react to those things when they happen, that’s what defines us. We can sit in long term sadness, unmoved because of failure or we can stand up from pain and just move on.
Pick the lessons from the past and shut the door. Forgive the past, forgive yourself most importantly. As they say, you can forgive but not forget but we can forgive what we cannot forget and just create a better way to remember it.
Never look back with regrets, look back only to learn from the mistakes you have made and to make better decisions in future.
You should not look back on your past and the mistakes you made then with regret. It will hold you back and keep you from learning. Instead, look back at your past mistakes in order to simply remember them. You will need those past mistakes to apply to your future endeavors so that you can make educated and experienced decisions for better outcomes in the future.
There isn’t any painful memory when you’d let yourself heal completely.
Letting yourself heal completely can only be achieved when you stop refusing to forgive, when you let go of the painful memories. The refusal to forgive and the holding on to bitter memories just prolong your agony.
When you continue to remember all the sad events in your life and you start thinking about retaliation and revenge, you continuously expose your open wounds and you keep yourself from healing completely.
Just use your time to meditate and reflect on things. Know yourself better, understand yourself better, validate yourself compassionately for what you’ve been through. Know that there is wisdom from such situation and it helps you to grow and strengthen to be molded into a renewed, revitalized you, being more wise today and in the future.
You can only lift yourself up by letting go of the things that weigh you down.
One bad thing in life isn’t that hard to deal with. It’s all the little bad things that add up over time that make you unhappy and bring you down. Holding on to bad memories and thoughts will only keep you from moving forward and developing. Negativity weighs you down. It weighs down your heart and crushes your spirit. You can bring yourself up if you let go of the negativity and hold on to the positive things in your life. When you finally let go of all that bad stuff, you can be free and happy. It will lift your spirit and bring you up.
There’s no point in accepting one’s apology if you keep reminding them of the hurt they caused you. It doesn’t mean you have to forgive and FORGET. It just means you forgive and LET GO.
Once you forgive a person, never try to bring back the wrong done by him especially when there are similar problems that arise between both of you in the future. It may be hard to forget the pain, but always try your best to let go of the past. Always remember that the past doesn’t necessarily dictate how a person becomes in the future. Give that person a chance to prove himself. Show to that person that you truly have forgiven him by letting go of the past. Do not try to hurt him more by bringing back undesirable memories of the past.
Do not let the things behind you pull you back from where you are supposed to go.
Whatever it is that you are trying to accomplish, do not allow all of life’s little hurts and obstacles keep you down or hold you back. You have to keep on, push through, and leave the things that hold you down behind you if you want to get where you are supposed to go in life.
For you to take hold of something worthwhile, let go of what you are holding for the longest time.
In each of our lives, we find things that we hold onto for long periods of time. We hold onto these things for so long because of many different reasons. No matter the reason for what we are holding onto, the fact is that eventually that thing will begin to hold us back or stand in our way of taking hold of something that is more worthwhile. Sometimes, in order to get a hold of something better, we have to let go of something we are just used to holding onto.
Sometimes the only way through the darkest part of your life is to keep on walking till you see a light.
We all experience dark parts in our life. It’s just part of life’s experiences that everyone must go through. You can try, and may even be successful at times, to avoid these dark parts in your life. Occasionally you will be able to get around it or avoid it altogether. But there will come a time when no matter how hard you try, you just have to accept that you’re going to have to push through the dark part, and hold on tight, and keep looking forward for the light at the end of the tunnel. It will come, you just have to keep going and keep looking.
You can never take full grasp of something new if you will not open your hands and let go of what you have been holding on for a long time.
In life, new things come our way once in awhile. In order to fully grasp whatever this new thing in your life is, you must open up and let go of whatever it is from your past, whatever old thing it is you are still holding onto. You cannot grasp something new in it’s entirety when you’re holding onto something old so tightly. Open up and let it go and give something new a chance.
While you are holding on to pain, you are allowing those who have hurt you to keep on hurting you.
When someone hurts you in life, you have two choices. You can accept what happened, let it go, and move on. The other choice is that you can hold onto the pain, dwell in it, and allow it to take over your life. When you hold onto the pain that someone has caused you, you are simply allowing that person to hurt you again and again, everyday. So choose to let go of the pain. Wipe it away and don’t allow that person to have that kind of control in your life.
Letting go requires no holding back, no turning back, no looking back.
If you truly want to let go of something or someone, then you have to be prepared to erase that thing or person from your life entirely. Don’t hold back. Jump in there and move on with your life. Forget what has happened. Don’t turn back to it, it is gone. Don’t look back or you will remember. Just look forward and let go and move on.
Don’t interfere with God’s plan by chasing people who are meant to stay out of your life.
God has a plan for all of us. He brings people in our lives for a time because they are meant to affect change in our lives somehow. Sometimes, he takes people out of our lives to affect change. There are times when God sees fit to take people out of our lives before we are ready for them to go. You cannot chase those people or try to hold onto them. If God wants them gone, they will be gone. It’s God’s plan, not ours. We shouldn’t interfere with His plan because he can see the whole picture and knows what is best for us, while all we can see is what is around us right now.
Don’t let anxiety keep you from moving forward.
Everyone gets stressed out. There are a lot of things in life that make life more difficult and make things harder to handle. Even in day to day chores and duties you can become stressed. All the stress that accumulates on your shoulders can cause you to experience anxiety from time to time. You cannot allow the anxiety to overcome you and hold you back from moving forward in life.
Letting go of the past is something you have to do slowly. Time helps you heal things and be stronger. Encourage yourself to do better every day and use all your learning in the past to help you become a better person today.
