How To Let Go & Heal From Past Hurts

So, you’re finding it hard to let go? We’ve all been there. Whether it’s drifting apart from a friend, an unhealed heartbreak, or failure that still stings, letting go of past hurts can feel like an uphill battle. But healing is possible. 

Before letting go, acknowledge your feelings. Emotions are part of what makes us human. It’s okay to hurt, but don’t dwell. Stoic philosophy suggests focusing on what you can control. Ask yourself: Can I change what happened in the past? No. Can I control how I react to it now? Absolutely. Shift your focus to the present moment to empower yourself to take charge of your emotional well-being. 

Remember that people come into our lives exactly when they’re supposed to, and they leave exactly when they must. Let people go when they want to go. Their part in your story is over; your relationship is complete, not ended. Go your own way and make space for new connections. 

Lastly, don’t forget the power of forgiveness. It’s not about excusing someone else’s actions or condoning what they did. Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself, releasing the grip of resentment and reclaiming your peace of mind. Holding onto grudges only poisons your own heart. Let go of what no longer serves you, and embrace the beautiful possibilities that lie ahead.
