"Letting go of your past is not to forget, or block memories, or stop to think about, or pretend the feelings are not there. It’s about the ability to think about your past with no feelings of anger, jealousy, hurt or regret.
Letting go is not about wishing things could have been different and dwelling in the past. It isn’t about thinking sad memories that leave you empty and hurt. It isn’t about loss or defeat.
To let go is to cherish the good memories, learning and growing. It’s about being thankful for the experiences that once made you laugh, made you cry, made you who you are today. It’s about having the courage to accept that people change and things change. It’s about having the strength to overcome the pain and move on. It’s about all that you had, all that you have and all that you will gain if you were to let go. Letting go is to release your past and grow and live for your present and your future" - Rita Zahara
