To let go isn’t to forget. It doesn’t leave feelings of anger, jealousy or regret. Letting go isn’t losing, it’s taking power away from the pain of memories. It’s not about pride and it’s not about how you appear; it’s not about obsessing or dwelling on the past. Letting go isn’t blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts, it doesn’t leave emptiness, hurt or sadness. It’s not giving up or giving in. Letting go isn’t about loss, and it isn’t defeat. To let go of something is to cherish the great memories, to overcome the darker times and to move on. It’s having an open mind and confidence in the future. Letting go is accepting, it’s learning, it’s experiencing. To let go is to be thankful for the experiences that once made you cry, laugh, love and grow. It’s about all that you had and all you still have. Letting go is having the courage to accept change and the strength to keep moving. It’s growing up, realising that a heart can sometimes change and that forgiveness can be a most potent remedy. To let go is to open a door, clear a path and set yourself free.
