Let It Go


I have gone thru pain and struggles.  I have grown and learned a lot through all those difficult moments.  The most important thing that I have realized is that pain has made me a better person.  I am neither resentful nor bitter.  Navigating through all the negative experiences in my life was meaningful as I became a more passionate and caring human being.  Pain has opened my eyes and I certainly don’t want to take the same path as those who hurt me.

Natural beauty can heal the pain

Pain has taught me how to better appreciate life and the loving people around me.  Ultimately, I have learned to let the pain go as holding on to it could only rip the joy from my soul. I will not let that happen, I will not give pain the power to destroy the kindness and all other beautiful sentiments within me.  I am alive, happy, and ready to grab life with a smile because I am not scared to be hurt.


Have you had a bad experience and held onto the pain?  You don’t need to answer, if you are reading this, it’s time to heal and let go of it and starts looking at the brighter side of life. Let nature, time, and self-love heal you.

Holding on to the pain will make you miss the beauty that life has to offer.  It is time to realize that pain was only a ladder to discover your biggest and strongest side.  It was only there to allow you to reach ultimate happiness.


  1. Thanks for sharing, sometimes, it’s hard to let go of the pain. We shield ourselves and we did not realized that we are hurting ourselves by doing so.

  2. Pain really does a number on us, it either makes us a better person, or it brings out the monster in us. And sometimes its just easier to let out the monster and inflict pains unto someone or something.

    The price however, is that the pains our monsters inflicted on other people might just too much.

    Somrtimes its just so hard or difficult and difficult to let go you know….

    • I agree with you, Melissa, we all go through painful experiences, after grieving, we must find a way to set ourselves free, and let the pain go.

  3. Thanks for sharing! It’s a great reminder. Sometimes it’s hard not to hold on to pain, but it’s definitely important to let things go.

  4. I can’t agree with you more, just let it go! When I was younger I used to hold grudges, but as I got older I realised it’s not worth it and only you are the one hurting.

  5. Thank you for sharing ! I remember this quote from Walter Anderson ,”Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself. “

  6. So true! Sometimes it seems like processing the pain can be painful as well, but learning how to let go is the only way to grow and to learn! Beautiful post and beautiful photos!

    • Absolutely, David, when we hold on to the pain and think we are protecting ourselves, we are only hurting ourselves, the best way to heal, to me, is to let go. It has helped me.

  7. This is a lovely post. I love these flowers they remind me of when I was a child. My grandparents had lots of lots of these flowers. This is actually a goal of mine to plant a garden at my house.

  8. This is such a great post and really pulls at the heart strings!!! There was a long time when I let hurt take control until I learned exactly what you are talking about and learned to take control over it. Life is just too short. Thank you for sharing!!
