90 Release Quotes To Help You Let Go And Be Free Of The Past

Release

We tend to carry some things in life for longer than we should. They could be events that happened, words that were said, or things that were done to us. Not everyone you come across in life will have your best interests at heart. Some people will pretend to like you only to wish for your ruin.

Others will show you plainly that they don't even like you. Either way, these are people we should not keep entertaining in our lives. They will keep doing things to us that are hurtful and derailing. They may say hurtful things to us or try to make sure that we don't get ahead in life.

If they are your friends they could try to keep you from working to meet your goals, say hurtful things to you while pretending they didn't mean to hurt you, or give you bad advice. If they are not your friends they could try to tell other people lies about you to make others hate you or be super competitive if they work with you so as to make sure your work is not noticed.

These are people you should release from your life. No matter what they do or say, don't take it to heart because it will only hurt you more. Ignore them and stay positive and confident in yourself. Get back at them by doing better. It will kill them to see you win.

And whatever pain you have been through in the past, release it too. You have carried it long enough and you deserve to be free at this point. Find a way to let it go and start your journey of healing. Be kind to yourself and give yourself all the love you have been denying yourself. May these release quotes remind you that you deserve to be free of the past!

There's a trick to the 'graceful exit.' It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over – and let it go. It means leaving what's over without denying its validity or its past importance to our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving up rather than out.

That is why it is so important to let certain things go. To release them. To cut loose. People need to understand that no one is playing with marked cards; sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Don't expect to get anything back, don't expect recognition for your efforts, don't expect your genius to be discovered or your love to be understood. Complete the circle. Not out of pride, inability or arrogance, but simply because whatever it is no longer fits in your life. Close the door, change the record, clean the house, get rid of the dust. Stop being who you were and become who you are.
