On Letting Go (Quotes From Criminal Minds)

These are some quotes from Criminal Minds, which is one of my favorite TV series.

“And when I was in that ring, getting punched over and over again, I figured out something. Sometimes, I want to fight,  but my body, it keeps telling me to stop. And it doesn’t matter how hard I punch, it just—I can’t do it. And when that happens, you know what I do? I let go, Ryan.
And what I figured out is, letting go doesn’t mean that you’re a quitter. It doesn’t mean that you lost. It just mean that you realize in that moment, that it’s time to let go and move on.
So if it’s time, Ryan, it’s alright. ‘Cause you fought a hell of a fight. Your mother and I, we both love you. Don’t you ever forget that.”
—Jimmy Hall

“A friend told me to be honest with you. So, here it goes.
This isn’t what I want, but I’ll take the high road. Maybe it’s because I look at everything as a lesson. Or because I don’t want to walk around angry. Or maybe it’s because I finally understand.
There are things we don’t want to happen, but have to accept. Things we don’t want to know, but have to learn. And people we can’t live without, but have to let go.”
—Jennifer “JJ” Jareau

“Some of us think holding on makes us strong. But sometimes it is letting go.”
—Hermann Hesse

“If there’s one thing I learned from Carolyn’s death, it’s that life is short. And you deserve to be happy.”
—David Rossi

“Sometimes the hardest part isn’t letting go but rather learning to start over.”
—Nicole Sobon
