    letting go is easy but the hardest part is the process, thinking bout things that will never be the same again.

    The Hardest part of letting go is knowing the fact that you will face alone tomorrow... Someone you hold on to, someone you share your secrets, that someone you loved so much will be gone... it hurts so much... but letting go doesn't mean the end of everything... Sometimes we need to let go of someone for us to grow and t correct our mistakes... Be brave enough and build yourself.... so that when the time comes you will be more ready....

    The hardest part is re-defining yourself afterward as an individual person without that person in your life anymore.  I let people go when they're not good for me.

    For me it was waking up alone in the morning, and not having her there.

    The hardest part of letting go is realizing that despite all your efforts and your love to make that other person stay, he or she chose to be happy with someone else and you have to face that fact no matter how much it pains you.

    For me the hardest part of letting go was the part of being alone.

    The longer a relationship lasts the more difficult it is to walk away. Many people see it as though they have "invested" too much time to simply let it go. However like any poor investment there comes a time when the smart thing to do is to stop investing in something that will never pay you dividends.

    When we finally realize the person we are with will never become the person we "need or truly want" we must either learn to accept things as they are or leave in hopes of finding our ideal mate, The person that "gets us" and wants the same things we want out of life.

    The hardest part of letting go is:
    1. Breaking the news to your future ex,dealing with their reaction.
    2. Starting over anew, allowing yourself to open your heart again.

    One reason so many people stay in unfulfilling relationships is because they dread the idea of starting all over again. It takes more "courage" to fall in love a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th time than it does the first time. After a while they convince themselves there is nothing out there better than what they have and in fact things could be much worse. In other words the glass is half empty.

    Letting somebody go, you once loved is never easy. The hardest part is moving on because most of the time you still think of possible solutions and you still try to fix it.

    Instead making the decision to finally move on is the hardest part. You should always be aware that even the most devastating situation once will be fine again.

    I think it may depend on who or what it is you're trying to let go of.  Personally, I have no trouble letting go of people or things.  My problem is that I can "let go", and I can "push away", and some people and things just keep coming back.  It's like some people or things are tethered to me by an elastic cord, when I let them go they stay away long enough to coat themselves in Crazy Glue, and then come flying back to permanently attach themselves to me (at least until I can figure out how to dissolve Crazy Glue).  LOL

    So, I guess, for me, the hardest part of letting go is figuring out to make stuff and people not keep coming back.   LOL  (Honestly...   I have a kind of "magnetism" that nobody would ever want!  LOL  )

    I don't know if there will ever come a day where I can fully let go....I pray that day will come eventually.

    The hardest part of letting go is actually moving on with your life. You seem to drag on as though something is missing.  Memories keep bombarding you and keeping you stagnant.
