12 Poems To Help You Let Go Based on Your Zodiac Sign


At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away. There is no in between. There is no bartering, bargaining, expecting and falling short in love. There is just choosing to be there or to not. Anything in between is a tired, self-interested excuse for love.

Heidi Priebe, This Is Me Letting You Go


If someone tells you they’re emotionally unavailable, please believe them.

You’re not going to change their mind. You’re not going to shake the ground they walk on and reroute their course. You’re just not. Please understand, if someone is not ready for love, there is nothing you can say and nothing you can do that will make them love you. You will only end up breaking your own heart.

Believe their actions, believe what they tell you.

You deserve to be loved freely.

Déjà Rae, Come Home to Yourself


No one will ever fully be able to understand the internal battles you had to endure just to heal, just to grow, just to make it here today. Be proud of the way you fought to save yourself. Be proud of the way you survived.

Bianca Sparacino, A Gentle Reminder


Decide you’re deserving of real friendship, true commitment and complete love with people who are healthy and thriving.

Then wait in the darkness, just for a little bit…

…And watch how quickly everything begins to change.

Brianna Wiest, This Is How You Heal


The most damaging way to live is not to stay small so that the world is never given the opportunity to hurt us on occasion, but that we hurt ourselves every day insisting that we might not be able to start living now because something behind us once didn’t go as we planned.

Courage is to show up and live anyway.

Change is to show up and live anyway.

Truth is to show up and live anyway.

The memories will keep coming, for a while. They don’t leave because we tell them to. They slowly fade as we fill our minds with new things more captivating, more compelling, more worth our attention.

We do not let go by standing within the ruins, but by building the life that was trying to emerge all along.

Brianna Wiest, Ceremony


How they make you feel says a lot about them and nothing about you. Trust me when I say someone who makes you question if you are worthy of being loved is not worthy of being loved by you.

Bianca Sparacino, The Strength In Our Scars


If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

Heidi Priebe, This Is Me Letting You Go


Be kind to yourself. Let go of the bad days behind you, and focus on all of the good days ahead. Life isn’t always perfect, and neither are we. There will be days that don’t go as planned, and there will be days that exceed all of your expectations. It’s about balance; it’s about taking the good with the bad. You can only do your best and sometimes, regardless of the outcome, your best is just enough.

Charlotte Freeman, Everything You’ll Ever Need


The people we meet at the wrong time are actually just the wrong people.

Heidi Priebe, This Is Me Letting You Go


Forgiveness doesn’t mean that you are giving up all of your power. Forgiveness means you’re finally ready to take it back.

Heidi Priebe, This Is Me Letting You Go


That one decision you are too afraid to make could be the very thing that sets you free in the best possible way.

It’s been too long, darling; it’s time to let go.

Charlotte Freeman, Everything You’ll Ever Need


From time to time, trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.
