5 Quotes About Moving On

Learning to Move On

Of course, you can’t achieve any kind of level of happiness if you’re stuck in the past. Learning to forgive is a skill you, and each and every one of us for that matter need to learn as we grow old. I say “we need to learn” because it seems we tend to forgive and forget harder as we age. As children, we usually forgive pretty fast and we’re honest about it too. So here are a few quotes about moving on.

But how does one learn to forgive? Let’s take a loot at some wise quotes:

¬†Letting go doesn’t mean giving up… it means moving on.

Often times when someone wants to move on, a required action is to let go. Let go of the past, let go of the anger, let go of the hatred and misunderstandings and just MOVE ON. Hanging to the negative in life, will only bring back more of it. Being able to let that go, will congruently bring you peace and happiness. Feelings that most of us probably want and long for.

One thing that can help you letting go, whatever the thing you’re stuck to, is to find yourself a new activity. A new hobby, or make a new friend, start jogging, learn to play an instrument, write a short story. Once you change your focal point, you’ll notice that step by step you will be able to let go, and move on.

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.
– Albert Einstein

I’ve heard an ugly saying recently: “you suck at life”. To be frank here, though this interesting phrase might make you mad, it also may be true to some extent. You can actually be bad at something if you don’t exercise, or improve your performance at it, right? Well, it’s pretty much the same with life. If you refuse to learn from your mistakes, and keep on gathering negative feelings inside of you, the outcome is pretty much obvious. You will be an unhappy person! Don’t let that happen to you, you can do much better. We all can actually!

Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass…
It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.
– Vivian Greene

See how unpleasant things can be turned into a favorable outcome? If you stay and think about it, there is nothing you can do to change the past. The only power you have at your disposal right now, is to model your present and your future. Staying mad at someone, or complaining about something in the past will not change a thing. Taking action, and making the most out of that situation can help you evolve as an individual. So start a creative thinking session with yourself, asking yourself questions like: “how can I make something good out of this situation?”, “what do I learn from this?”.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
– Lao Tzu

You can’t achieve your true potential if you hold on to what you have done, or what you could have done. As Tony Robbins once said: “what doesn’t grow, dies”. That is very true. We all have inside of us the desire to grow. We ignore it sometimes, but it still exists. So don’t let your spirit, dreams and goals die. If there is someone that has control over your life, that someone should be YOU.

People can be more forgiving than you can imagine.
But you have to forgive yourself.
Let go of what’s bitter and move on.
– Bill Cosby

I left this at the end, because I think is the best one yet. I’m one of those people that believe in the good inside each and every one of us. It has been proven to me, time and time again, that people can, and will forgive you for almost anything. That’s the way we are wired. If we see that someone regrets he’s/her’s doings, we are willing to let it go.

The paradox here, is that usually we’re having a harsh time forgiving ourselves. We judge and condemn our own person as we would never do to somebody else. There is nobody that knows you better than yourself. I don’t care what your best friend says. You live with you 24/7, you know what you need, and you know what you want.

Learn from yourself and from others, and do your best to learn to forgive and let go. Letting go can be the best thing you’ve done for yourself in a while. Try it!
