Letting Go of Your Past – A “Quips and Tips” eBook


My third “Quips and Tips” ebook is about letting go of your past; it’s based on my most popular article on Quips and Tips for Achieving Your Goals (“How to Let Go of Someone You Love”). Every day, that article gets hundreds of hits – and it barely skims the surface of letting go of your past!

I wanted to offer more (and better) information about saying goodbye, moving on, and rebuilding life after loss, so I wrote this ebook.

In 75 Ways to Let Go of Someone You Love, I offer the best, most helpful tips and strategies from psychologists, life coaches, family therapists, and counselors. It’s about letting go of addictive relationships, affair breakups, estranged family members, and long-lost loves. This book is about healing, strength, and authenticity.

Letting go of someone you love isn’t something you do once – and poof! You’re free, healed, and happy! Rather, letting go is a journey peppered with steps forward and steps backward, good days and bad days, peaks and valleys.

How do I know? Because I’m an “old pro” at letting go. I grew up in foster homes, and was constantly saying hello and good-bye to new families, friends, schools, and cities. The downside of good foster homes is that it’s so hard to keep leaving and starting over. But I learned how to love, say good-bye, and open my heart to love again.

And I’ve loved and lost life partners – those heart-wrenching, gut-twisting breakups that slam you to the ground and rip you to pieces. Worse, though, was when my sister cut me out of her life. Five years ago, she told me she didn’t want to speak to me again and wouldn’t tell me why. That was the ultimate lesson in powerlessness and letting go.

All 15 chapters in this ebook start with a real person’s story of breaking up; some people have moved on while others are still trapped in the past. Maybe readers will recognize themselves in their stories. Even better, they’ll see how clinging to the past instead of letting go steals their happiness, confidence, self-respect, and hopes for the future.

    It is really hard to forget and let go of your past because it has been part of your life. I would like to thank you for sharing this. I really believe this will be a great help to all people who are still preoccupied with what happened in their lives before.

    I can relate. I sometimes think I should be able to write a book about grief. Nine years ago my grown son ended his own life and 3 years ago my husband, the love of my life, died from cancer. I was diagnosed with a disorder similar to MS and have lost the ability to walk properly and financially I am living day to day BUT. I’ve worked hard at whatever was needed to keep myself spiritually fit. I always say you don’t get over these things, you get through them. You can’t hide from, you put one foot in front of the other. As you say there is no poof one day. You just slowly realize that you are laughing more and hurting less. People ask me how I’ve done it and I say you just do. Live in the now and do the best you can and it gets better.
