20 Letting Go Quotes
Love, Self

Letting go of the past, anger, resentment, or fear will open you to so much possibility.

Imagine holding on to something with both of your hands and someone comes to you and has this amazing gift to offer. You look at it wrapped up so nicely; you know it will be something great, but you have to reach for it and your hands are already full.

You are unable to take the gift. You choose to hold on and not let go, which limits you from grabbing what is right in front of you. It may be exactly what you are looking for but you will never know if you don’t learn how to let go of what no longer serves you.

You may not be letting go because you are afraid that the unknown is worse. You many not be letting go because you think you aren’t good enough to have more in your life. You many not be letting go because you feel you are not worthy of good in your life.

All these beliefs are your B.S. (Belief Symptom) getting in the way. They are all false. You are worthy, deserving and more than enough for greatness in your life.
