To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on January 1, 2015 in Picture Quotes

There is a big difference between giving up and letting go. Letting go means freeing yourself from something that is no longer serving you. It means removing toxic people and belief systems from your life so that you can make room for relationships and ideas that are conducive to your wellbeing and happiness. Giving up reduces your life. Letting go expands it. Giving up is imprisoning. Letting go is liberation. Giving up is self-defeat. Letting go is self-care.So the next time you make the decision to release something or someone that is stifling your happiness and growth, and a person has the audacity to accuse you of giving up or being weak, remind yourself of the difference. Remind yourself that you don’t need anyone’s permission or approval to live your life in the way that feels right. No one has the authority to tell you who to be or how to live.

    Anelia, you can! It takes love, the truth and self worth. It isn’t easy, they may get angry. Only you know the truth.

    It is not easy while it is still a thought bt it is very easy when you actually doing it. We leave once in life. Depens on an individual’s choice.

    When you let go of someone or something that have caused you pain then forgive and forget and start a new life. God will always be there to guide you.

    Why would u allow toxic people into your life they have no benefit at all
    The only people u should allow in your life are the people who have your best interests at heart
    Dare to let go and move on to nice people

    Iv just let go in my relationship … Things he did made me realise that he didn’t have much respect for me .. Iv battled with my thoughts and emotions But I can’t get over my anger of what he’s done so I will say with regret but more so for my well being that letting go is the only option.
