Letting Go Quotes

letting go quotes

“I say I’ve moved on with my mouth, my body has acted it out and my spirit is one step further than that.  It’s my heart that waits for that last call when all others have left…that stands in the dark train station hoping, longing that miraculously, he’d come back.”Stephanie Schneider

“The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.” ―Steve Maraboli

“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

“There is no such thing as a "broken family." Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.” 
 C. JoyBell C.

“What is it that’s so painful about moving on from a first love?  Some say it’s having your heart sewed to them, having your trust bound to them…but looking at it I think it’s fear more than anything.  They were the first to see that deep into you and were the first to afterwards walk away.  Moving on from this requires tremendous strength and self-love…without these things you won’t move on; you’ll just become a ghost of the woman you were when he wanted you.  But let go, it’s okay.  How can you know what we can be if we don’t move on…stretch yourself like never before…jump free…you will see…you will fly.”  Stephanie Schneider

“Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You've got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it. It's like boats. You keep your motor on so you can steer with the current. And when you hear the sound of the waterfall coming nearer and nearer, tidy up the boat, put on your best tie and hat, and smoke a cigar right up till the moment you go over. That's a triumph.” 
 Ray Bradbury

“Most things are forgotten over time. Even the war itself, the life-and-death struggle people went through is now like something from the distant past. We’re so caught up in our everyday lives that events of the past are no longer in orbit around our minds. There are just too many things we have to think about everyday, too many new things we have to learn. But still, no matter how much time passes, no matter what takes place in the interim, there are some things we can never assign to oblivion, memories we can never rub away. They remain with us forever, like a touchstone.” 
 Haruki Murakami

“There are powers far beyond us, plans far beyond what we could have ever thought of, visions far more vast than what we can ever see on our own with our own eyes, there are horizons long gone beyond our own horizons. This is courage- to throw away what is our own that is limited and to thrust ourselves into the hands of these higher powers- God and Destiny.To do this is to abide in the realm of the eternal, to walk in the path of the everlasting to follow in the footprints of God and demi-gods. The hardest part for man is the letting go. For some reason, he thinks himself big enough to know and to see what's good for him. But in the letting found freedom. In the letting go........ is found the flight!” 
 C. JoyBell C.

“My senses didn’t want to leave him.  He was strong, he smelled so good, he emulated everything I wanted.  But when I looked into his heart, it was full, there was no room left for me; I had nowhere else to go but move on to the great unknown, praying, hoping to God I would make it.”  Stephanie Schneider

“What happens when you let go, when your strength leaves you and you sink into darkness, when there's nothing that you or anyone else can do, no matter how desperate you are, no matter how you try? Perhaps it's then, when you have neither pride nor power, that you are saved, brought to an unimaginably great reward.” 
 Mark Halperin

“As adults, we hvae many inhibitions against crying. We feel it is an expression of weakness, or femininity or of childishness. The person who is afraid to cry is afraid of pleasure. This is because the person who is afraid to cry holds himself together rigidly so that he won't cry; that is, the rigid person is as afraid of pleasure as he is afraid to cry. In a situation of pleasure he will become anxious. As his tensions relax he will begin to tremble and shake, and he will attempt to control this trembling so as not to break down in tears. His anxiety is nothing more than the conflict between his desire to let go and his fear of letting go. This conflict will arise whenever the pleasure is strong enough to threaten his rigidity.
Since rigidity develops as a means to block out painful sensations, the release of rigidity or the restoration of the natural motility of the body will bring these painful sensations to the fore. Somewhere in his unconscious the neurotic individual is aware that pleasure can evoke the repressed ghosts of the past. It could be that such a situation is responsible for the adage "No pleasure without pain.” 
 Alexander Lowen

“But I don't blame you anymore, that's too much pain to left me half dead...inside my head. And boy looking back I see I'm not the girl I used to be. When I lost my mind, it saved my life.” 

“You won’t want to move on, it won’t feel good, you won’t feel like you’re getting anywhere for a very long time.  But I promise, if you just keep walking that way, your feelings will catch up…you’ll step out of the endless maze and looking back, seeing where you were compared to now, you will realize you were going nowhere and now you are free.”  Stephanie Schneider
