What are your favorite letting go quotes?

Sometimes you need to hear the right thing at the right time to inspire you to make the change you need. That’s exactly what these quotes about letting go are for.

Letting go of the past is extremely difficult, whether it be a failure, a regret, a person, a great memory, or in my case an addiction mixed with all of the above. But the truth is, you have to let go in order to move on.

Many times, we just need to hear it from someone else so, it has the intended effect. If you read a quote or saying and feel it you right in the pit of your stomach. Then, it has served its purpose.

A particular quote feels like it hits you so hard because it struck a nerve. It resonates with you because you know it’s so damn true because it touched your pain point.

These 40 quotes about letting go and moving on are meant to do just that.

I hope that these particular quotes will help you as much as they have helped me.

40 Best Letting Go Quotes To Finally Move On

All about letting go quotes

Do I even have to ask how hard it is to let go? Especially of something or someone that you love? Or a life or situation you are accustomed to?

Yet, just because we love something or someone does not mean that it is good for us.

Sometimes we get so stuck in the past and the memories of what once was, that we refuse to let go.

Or those times when we know without a doubt that letting go is the only way. But, actually taking that step seems damn near impossible.

Just know, if you think about walking away then it’s the right thing to do. Letting go is your only option if you want to grow and improve your life.

Best Damn Letting Go Quotes To Move On To The Life You Want

Do you feel inspired by these words? #sobermotivation

Are you ready to let go of the past and move forward?

Each of these quotes about letting go has personally helped me to move on with my goals and dreams. I had to learn that in order to move forward with my life. I I had to let go of the past.

That not only meant forgiving others and saying goodbye to them but, it also meant saying goodbye and letting go of my own shit, forgiving myself, and letting go of the guilt that I had for my own mistakes.

That was tough. It was extremely tough. Although, one thing  I can tell you for certain is this.

It was worth it.

P.S. One more thing you need to know. There is a big difference between letting go and forgetting. I will never forget the pain I caused in addiction or the evil shit I did.

But in order to be a better person, I had to let go of the pain and feelings I carried with me. The remorse, shame, and guilt.

Remember, mistakes are not failures but lessons learned.

  2. “7. There’s an important difference between giving up and letting go. -Jessica Hatchigan”
    Sooo true. Great post, really enjoyed it. 🙂

    hold on pain ends
    Is something that “helps” me so know better, I have this tattooed on me along with the word serenity from
    When so got out of detox, of course detox is the “easiest part” you are in a center you have to stay clean the hard part is when you get out and figure out life again… or what u think life is or should be… I’ve been working on my sobriety for 7 years for most of those 7 years I’ve been really good but I will
    Be the first one to admit, not all of those years are sober or good, I slip I fall. I continue to try again….. any advice?????
    I’m not “sick” anymore have a lot of mental problems that stemmed from using but I understand now I have done some/most of those things to myself but a bad relationship did not help matters at all.
    Any advice helps… thanks!!!!

    • Throughout the years of my addiction, I slightly attempted to quit or would have a few months and relapse. Always knowing I would end up using again. One thing I always said was as long as you have hope that one day you are going to quit, then you keep trying till it happens for good. Once you lose all hope, it’s harder.

      You still got hope for your sobriety so keep trying until you achieve it. I could give you a lot of advice but I don’t want to leave it in a comment or it would take up a few pages lol

      If you have a minute, email me. It will be easier that way and then we can exchange emails. hello@unjunkiefied.com Just made sure to spell it right. People spell unjunkiefied wrong all the time, including me.
