75 Compelling Quotes Teaching You How To Let Go

Letting Go Quotes

One of the most difficult challenges we encounter as humans is letting go.

Letting go of relationships, the past, our beliefs, the status quo, our fears, our hopes and dreams, our youth, and our sense of control.

Life is about change, and change is often scary and painful. We want to cling to what we have, even when we know what we have isn't what we really want or need. Sometimes change is forced upon us, and we fight it tooth and nail until we've lost the battle. Then we sit in bitterness and remorse, giving up the only real control we have in life -- the ability to let go and begin anew.

What if we could simply accept that change is inevitable and that the only sane response to it is releasing our resistance to it? I know it's not easy to simply let go, but once you do, you recognize how powerfully liberating it is. You free yourself from pain, guilt, and regret, and you find a vast open space in which to move forward with your life.

Are you at a crossroad in a relationship or in life where you must decide to make a change or where change has been thrust upon you?

Here are 75 letting go quotes teaching you how to move forward in life:
