Many of us have experienced great pain and sadness caused by the loss of someone or something. It may be a relationship that we value and hope that it would eventually change for the better but when the toxicity becomes more painful and causes more hurt, we must learn to let go. (Read our article on how to let go of the past).
However, letting go has never been easy and we still often feel attached to the past because we’re not sure of what the future will bring. Our level of comfort with the known is another thing that enjoins us to try to bear with the pain and hurt, rather than letting go.
For instance, if you asked someone in an abusive relationship why he or she has refused to let go, he or she would probably tell you that “the devil you know is better than the angel you don’t know” and this feeling of uncertainty tends to make us hold onto the past and resist change. Letting go is a process that takes time but when you decide to start the journey, you’ll realize that some beautiful things will start happening to you.
1. You will get to see a new positive version of yourself
As humans, we have so much power that we don’t even know about. Though this power isn’t about doing magic or making the night turn to day, we do have the power to alter and define our memories and the decisions we make are also a reflection of the power we have.
Thus, it’s up to us to choose to change our future and choose what we want to spend time focusing on. There’s this powerful new positive version of your life that will be created by your memories and mind when you choose to let go of what is hurting you.
2. You will make room for the new
You’ll be ushered into an interesting and refreshing chapter of growth in your life, get to meet new and amazing people, get new visions, and become drawn towards new goals when you choose to let go of the past. You’re basically forfeiting your present when you constantly replay your past.
We’re not purposed to live a static life because we have room for more growth and there’s a reason why life often propels us towards more growth.
3. You will handle new obstacles with grace
What is done is done. Your past isn’t meant to be an eternal punishment but a learning experience. You’ll be able to easily let go and move on and even handle your next challenges without breaking a sweat if you’ve once been able to push through those difficulties.
They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and wiser and this is just it.
4. You will learn to love yourself first
As earlier mentioned, self-care and self-love is very important. Aside from the fact that it helps us build our self-esteem, it also makes us appreciate ourselves for who we are.
When you don’t love yourself, there’s nothing another person can do that will make you love yourself more unless you just want to deceive yourself. Loving yourself first is the key to feeling loved and one of the main reasons why so many people stay in hurtful relationships is because they don’t love themselves and they need to lean on another person before they can see the love. Tragic.
5. You will inspire others
How great would it be to be a source of inspiration to others out there who are experiencing the same thing you’ve been through? In fact, you’ll always feel good when you get to meet tender, kind-hearted, and smiling souls that are in the shoes that you’ve once been and you’ll always inspire them to move on too.
You’ll become an inspiration to many and you’ll be living proof that letting go is very much feasible.
6. You will grow closer to your destiny
Though some people may have contrary opinions, I do believe that there’s a reason why we’re here on earth. Life makes us stronger through all the challenges, tribulations, burdens, hardships, and experiences we’ve had.
Have a mindset that everything you go through is designed to make you grow and life is teaching you more with all the learning experiences you’re getting.
7. You’ll naturally attract what you need
When you let go of what you should, it’s natural that the things you need and deserve will get attracted to you. For example, if you’re in a relationship where you’re abused and not appreciated, it’s until you let go that you’ll find someone that will treat you better.
Have faith that when the time is right, what you need will come to you.

8. You’ll get to see for yourself that all you need is YOU
It’s impossible for you to lose something that you are but you may lose something that you have. When you let go, you’ll get to understand that you’ve always been sufficient for yourself.
Yes, it’s good to be in a loving, supportive, and blissful relationship but think of others that are not in a relationship, do you think they’re not happy?
Love and attachment are two different things and you’ll be able to build an independent life and find joy in your interests and who you are when you let go.
