Inspirational Quotes about Letting Go

I selected these inspirational quotes about letting go to remind us not to allow our past trauma to dictate the direction our life will take in future.

The pain I suffered as a child used to hang around my neck, dragging me down like a heavy anchor. People tell you glibly that you should forgive and forget – but how is that possible? Even if you manage to forgive, some things can never be forgotten.

However with time I realized that it is possible to accept that what happened cannot be undone and it will be part of you forever, but to take away its power to destroy your future.

Letting go does not mean pretending that your traumatic experiences never happened. It also does not mean that you should pretend you never felt that pain. That would not be letting go – it would be an unhealthy denial and distortion of your reality.

As these inspirational quotes remind us, letting go is about taking back our power to control our destiny. It means working to improve our low self-esteem, and changing behaviours such as learned helplessness or negative self-talk.

I hope that you will find these inspirational quotes about letting go as helpful as I did.
