95 Powerful Affirmations for Letting Go + Moving On With Life

What comes to mind when you think about letting go? You deserve to have a light heart and clear mind as you step into your next chapter. These affirmations for letting go will help you release emotions, relationships, and situations you’ve outgrown, so you can move forward. 

How Affirmations Can Help You Let Go

Your life is a beautiful, endless cycle of new beginnings, life experience, and completions. So letting go can represent a lot of things. 

You may be struggling to let go of:

  • A relationship
  • Distrust in The Universe’s plan
  • Control over a situation
  • Past events
  • Fear
  • Guilt or shame
  • Hurt or anger  

So, I’ve broken out the affirmations below into these specific topics (did I miss anything? If so, leave me a comment at the bottom of this post).

Whatever you’re releasing, take a moment to honor yourself now for doing the emotional work to let go and move forward. 

When negative emotions aren’t processed, they get stuck in your physical body and can cause disease. 

So, taking this time for yourself is a profound act of self-care that you should be proud of. 

These affirmations for letting go will help to shift your perspective, so you can focus on:

  • Blessings that arose from your situation
  • Mindfulness to stay in your ‘now’ 
  • Emotional resilience and maturity
  • Encouragement and hope for the future
  • Closure
