The woods are lovely dark and deep,

But I have promises to keep.

And miles to go before I sleep.

And miles to go before I sleep.

— Robert Frost

No matter how deeply your past tries to lure you back to itself, the beauty of life lies in the acceptance of the simple fact that the future belongs to the people who are willing to let go of the past.

There is a deep reason in why things have to end and sometimes we may not be able to relate to, how things unravel but at the end, it is what it is for the sake of the greater good. And you would only be able to see the reasons clearly, when you are willing to lift the smoke screen of dobut blocking your view. You will only be able to move forward, when you finally let go of the burdens of your past, because the more of your past you try to carry forward the slower your speed is going to be.

And you have to finally understand that no matter how beautiful, and cherish able your past was, it will still be gone, and the longer you waste dwelling upon it, the more you are going to compromise your future.


Letting go is the first step on the path of liberation, because when you carry more of your past you reduce your capacity of being able of loving the present. And remember letting go isn't about the ability to forget the past, but it's about having the wisdom and strength to embrace the present.

Do not let the darkness of your past block the light of joy in your present. What happened is done. Stop giving time to things that no longer exist, when there is so much joy to be found here and now.

Trying to live your life while dwelling on your past is like trying to drive a car with your complete concentration into the rearview mirror, you are going to crash and by the time you realise your mistake the damage would be done.

You can never reach out for anything new if your hands are always full of yesterday's junk, learn that letting go is being completely in love with yourself, so that you are able to look at your past with a different perspective, its the understanding that you can't change what happened in the past but you can change wether you let it poison you or nourish you.

And lastly never forget that whenever God asks you to put something down it's only because he already planned something better for you to pickup.

Don't burden your soul from the weight of what isn't yours to carry.

Don't burden your soul from the weight of what isn't yours to carry.

Let go of The Pain

Let go of the painful memories,

That torment your soul.

Leave behind all the pity and guilt,

And let the good things roll.

Let go of the burdens that you carry,

That weigh you down.

Remember who you are oh warrior Princess,

And straighten your crown.

Let go of the dobutful feelings,

That blurr your sight.

Leave behind the mindset that fools you,

Into thinking, that you cannot fight.

Let go of the darkness,

that taints your mind.

Hold onto the Ray's of hope,

And you will eventually discover that you are one of a kind.

Let go of the mindset,

That makes you think,

That you are ugly because you are scarred.

Take pride in being the person you are.

Let go of any thought that makes you think otherwise.

Let go of any thought that makes you think otherwise.
