      ‘‘People have a hard time letting go of their suffering.
      Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.‘’  

      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 obsessing or dwelling on the past. Letting go
      isn’t blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts, and it 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, and 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.

      ‘‘You don’t realize that if you stop looking backwards craving the love and
      acceptance which you didn’t receive from your parents, then you might
      open your eyes to what is available for you now. But you won’t let go.
      If only you could see that looking back into an incomplete and imperfect
      past, with regret, blame, guilt or resentment is keeping you from the treasures
      that await you here now. The past has gone. You cannot rectify
      something that is no longer with you.‘’
