to let go isn't to forget,
not to think about, or ignore.
it doesn't leave feelings of anger,
jealousy, or regret.
letting go isn't about winning or losing.
it's not about pride
and it's not about how you appear,
and it's not about obsessing or dwelling on the past.
letting go isn't blocking memories
or sinking sad thoughts,
and doesn't leave emptiness, hurt, or sadness.
it's not about giving in or giving up.
letting go isn't about loss and it's not about defeat.
to let go is to cherish the memories,
but to overcome and move on.
it is having an open mind
and confidence in the future.
letting go is learning and experiencing and growing.
to let go is to be thankful for the experiences that
made you laugh, made you cry, made you grow.
it's about all that you have, all that you had,
and all that you will soon gain.
letting go is having the courage to accept change,
and the strength to keep moving.
letting go is growing up.
it is realizing that the heart can sometimes
be the most potent remedy.
to let go is to open a door,
and to clear a path and set yourself free. "
