In this article, discover 40 profound affirmations for letting go, moving forward, and embracing all parts of your journey. Let these affirmations guide you forward and help you to release what no longer serves you to make space for new beginnings.
These two words can bring up a lot of heavy and conflicting emotions, both positive and negative. On one hand, letting go represents an opportunity to move forward into a beautiful new beginning.
On the other hand, letting go may mean releasing something that’s been a profound part of your life – something you’re not quite sure you’re fully ready to release.
The reasons you might need to let go are numerous and far-reaching:
- Letting go of past relationships
- Letting go of control
- Letting go of a dream
- Letting go of pain
- Letting go of fear, anger, or another feeling that doesn’t serve you
- Letting go of the vision you once had for your future
- Letting go of a job, a home, or something else that’s been meaningful for you
- Letting go of the past, in all of its beautiful, sometimes heartbreaking messiness.
One reason why people sometimes have a difficult time letting go is that they believe this somehow lessens their past experiences. For instance, you might think that moving on from a past relationship means that the past relationship wasn’t important or meaningful.
But this isn’t true.
You can love, honor, and cherish all the memories of that past relationship while still moving forward. To honor the past, you don’t have to live in it. You can acknowledge what it meant to you – how important it was to you.
And you can keep moving forward.
You can keep dreaming of a beautiful future.
You can keep following your heart into an incredible new chapter of your life.
Below, you’ll find 40 profound affirmations for letting go and moving forward. Because “letting go” can pertain to so many situations and carry so many different meanings, you’ll find affirmations for different aspects of this sometimes difficult experience. Allow yourself to find the affirmations that resonate with you and let them be a loving guide forward on your beautiful journey.
I hope that these affirmations serve your mind, body, and spirit and remind you of your incredible courage, resilience, and strength.
