21 Letting Go Quotes, If You Want to Move On!

Letting go of someone you love is not easy, I know. But do you know what is even harder? It is staying in a relationship when the other person no longer loves you.

I remember this old quote about letting go back in my high school days. It goes like this “If you really love someone set him/her free if he returns in kind you know he/she’s yours.”

This quote is really hard to apply to real life. I know that also. Especially if the person involved was me/you. However, it is what it is. One way or another you have to set the other person free and move on with your life. Maybe you are not meant to be and you will meet someone who is even better.

Today I came across this youtube video titled “letting go quotes.” I got interested in it not because I can relate. Rather, I think of those who will be looking for these quotes because they are trying to muster the strength to let go of someone they love.

If you are that person then read on. For sure you’ll find this post useful if you are trying to set someone free.

Letting Go of Someone You Love Quotes List

I hate to see the one I love happy with somebody…
But I surely hate it more to see the one I love unhappy with me…

The hardest part of dreaming about someone you love is having to wake up.

“Don’t worry my tears won’t blame you.
Those are just the words my heart uses to explain my pain”

Never be sad for what is over
Just be glad it was once yours.

I never hated you for not loving me,
But I hate you for making me fall even more
When I’m trying to let you go

“If you love someone, put their name in a circle instead of a heart, because hearts can break, but circles go on forever.”

Sometimes it’s hard to accept the truth that your loved one had change a lot
And forget the promises you’ve made four each other.
But you know what hurts a lot?
Its when you want that person to be yours forever..
But its not what he wanted to happen…

“We always ignore the ones who adore us and adore the ones who ignore us.”

Letting go doesn’t always mean “it’s over”,
Breaking up wouldn’t mean “I’ve had enough”,
Instead, it’s as good as saying,
“Ayaw na kitang masaktan”
Go on you deserve someone better..

Why can’t you see how much you hurt me this time?
You used to say you were sorry, now you don’t.
You don’t even care anymore.

The times we were happy together are worth the times I cry alone

I know you’re a good person. I can’t make you love me..
miss me..
all I can is hope that someday you will..

You never know what you have until it’s gone

You don’t die from a broken heart, you only wish you did.

I wonder when you look into my eyes watch my heart shatter,
does it break your heart too, even crack it a little bit?
I miss you a little I guess you could say, a little too much, a little too often, and a little more each day.

I just realized it is so lonely being free

If for every single time you made me smile,
I would pick a star from above,
I would have a whole sky in my hands.

If I could give you one thing in life,
I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes,
Only then you would realize how special you are to me.

I’ll always remember how much you once cared.

Nobody knew that you aimed at me at night saying “good night, I love you”
or in the morning saying “good morning, I missed you last night”
Nobody understands why I fell for you, all they saw was the result; a broken heart

“The truth is you can rip my heart out, throw it to the ground, then I’d pick it up and dust it off….
And give it back to you.”

Here is a classic song that can unchain your heart that is still holding on. Learn the art of letting go with this song.

    t’s over. he’s/she’s gone.
    Why do we have to part while love is still there?
    Why do we have to suffer? Why do we have to cry when someone bids goodbye? Why do beginnings have an end? Why do we have to meet only to lose each other in the end?

    There are questions left unanswered, words left unsaid, letter left unread, poems left undone, song left unsung, love left unfulfilled.
    In a relationship, one of the hardest things to do is saying goodbye, and letting go. It’s like breaking a crystal, co’z you’ll never know when you will be able to pick up the pieces again. More often than not. Those who go, feels not the pain in parting, It is those who are left behind, co’z they are left w/ memories of love that was almost meant to be.

    At the end of relationship, we are embarrassed to find ourselves alone. Unfair as it may, but that’s the way love goes. That’s the bitter risk of falling in love. After all nothing is constant but change…everything will eventually come to an end w/out us knowing when, w/out us knowing how, w/out us even knowing why. And we must forget, not because we want to,but because we have to.
    In letting go, sorrows comes not a single spy, but in a battalion. It seems that everywhere you go, everything you do, every song you hear, every turn of your head, every movement of your body, every beat of your heart, every blink of your eye and every breath that you take always reminds you of him/her. It’s like stab of knife a torture in the night. Funny how the whole world would becomes depopulated when only one person is missing. Just imagine, there are billions of people on earth and yet you feel empty and lonely w/out each other.
    I don’t know if it’s worth calling an art, but letting go entails special skill coupled w/ considerable space and time. Time heals all wounds but it takes a little push on our part. Acceptance plays a part. Not all wishes comes true., not all love stories end with “And they happily ever after”.

    Sometimes we have to part because of the circumstances beyond our control. “We have to suffer, if it will provide happiness to others. Every beginnings has it ends, like every dawn has its dusk. It something we have to accept with faith.
    It’s over, he’s/she’s gone. But life has to go on, Goodbye doesn’t always mean forever. There will be a place and time where question will be answered, words will be spoken, letters will be read, poems will be recited in the night, song will be sung in harmony and love will be fulfilled.
