44 Powerful Affirmations for Letting Go

Holding onto grudges is something most people have done. We hold onto anger, frustration, resentment, and fear, because sometimes, just sometimes, holding on makes us feel like we’re in control.

But when we’re truly honest with ourselves, holding on is more painful over time than learning to let go. At some point, you need to choose between what is harmful to you, or what is difficult.

These affirmations for letting go can help you do just that.

Using Affirmations to Let Go

Affirmations are positive statements we assert to be true. They give us power, reframe the stories we tell ourselves, and even can help rewire our brains.

If you’re holding onto something you want to let go of, affirmations can be a great way to do it. There are 44 affirmations below. Here’s what you can do:

  1. Choose a few of the affirmations that resonate with you the most.
  2. Write them down in a journal or somewhere you can display it (like a post-it note)
  3. Every day, rewrite them.
  4. Every day, speak them out loud to yourself when you have a moment alone.
  5. Most importantly, you need feel yourself letting go. Feel the release of pain.

Hi there,

I recently found these affirmations as well as the 40 powerful affirmations for anxiety relief and the 55 positive self-esteem affirmations. I am wondering if there is a way to get a PDF of them all so that I can print on cardstock to have a deck of these to draw from.

I am in love with all 3 sets and I use them all the time but I keep needing to come back to the website and so a printable deck would be incredible. Look forward to hearing if this is possible!!

Thank you so much for sharing all of these!

Thank you Ashley
