5 Things You Need To Let Go In 2020

5 things You Need To Let Go In 2020. Hey guys, I hope you are all well. In today’s post, I want to talk about five things you need to let go of in 2020. I had recently talked about 5 Habits You Must Sop In 2020, a post about your habits that you may have been doing within the last decade. Now, I want to share five things you may need to let go of that have affected you in the previous decade.

5 Things You Need To Let Go In 2020

The Past

First and foremost, you got to let go of the past. I know this is hard, but whatever happened in the last decade or so, you got to let go of it. Forgive and forget the people that hurt you. The past is the past. Stop thinking about what you should have done and did not do. Let go of the pain that you have felt in the last ten years or so.

People that don’t matter

I have gotten my large circle of ‘friends’ down to 5 quality friendships. These are people you feel comfortable talking to about anything without having to be worried. Trust me, and it’s better to have five friends who are there for you and you care about, rather than having 50+ friends filled with nothing but drama. People will either lift you by encouraging you to achieve your goals and live a better lifestyle, or they will drag you down with their problems by pretending to be your friend due to jealousy.

No Matter What They Do or Say, Don’t You Dare Doubth Your Worth

Unuplifting Surroundings

If deep down you are not happy with where you are right now, and you have spent the last decade changing things around, moving from one apartment to the next, one job to another, to ‘make it work’. Then this has to stop. You either stay where you are, or you get up and do something about it. Move to another city or country if you have to. Stop hanging out in the same spot with the same people, go out of your comfort zone, and explore new things.


Guilt is one of the powerful ways to bring you down. Feeling the guilt of something that you felt was your responsibility which did not work out. It is the most painful feelings anyone could hold on to themselves. Suppose you have been unfaithful in your previous relationship and feel guilty because that relationship would have led to your happily ever after. There’s nothing you can do about it. At the end of the day, that relationship would have still worked out if the foundation was strong.


We are human, and anger is part of our nature if you have spent the last decade being angry at something that had happened to you. Or someone who hurt you, of which you have been seeking revenge. This has to stop. You have to open your eyes and realise that you have just wasted a whole decade of your life being angry. Life is life. You can’t control what happens to you or what they had said or done that made you angry. All you can do is decide how you react to it.

I hope you enjoyed the post. Please share this post, and let’s all live in peace and pure happiness. We only have one life to live.

    I’ve been working on letting go of people that don’t matter, the people that just create more drama and stress then they help you.

    “People that don’t matter” is a good one, I’ve done a lot of growing the last few years and got fed up with fake people who stick around just to take advantage of my kindness while just not caring, I was just a second thought. My husband on the other hand is struggling with this, wishing he still had as many friends as he used too yet he knows many of them weren’t good to be around.

    Letting go of the past is easily my biggest struggle, and yet it is so important! I know that this is something that I really need to work on in 2020. Thank you for that important reminder.

    This is such great advice. It can be so difficult to let go of certain things becasue we often feel like they are built into us, like another body part. But letting go of things that are only doing our mental health harm is such a healthy way to move forward. Thanks so much for sharing this great write-up, it is such a good reminder of how to start the New Year off on a healthy note!

    This post is so relevant to me right now! I had a really difficult year in 2019 – I’m taking the good things into the new year and trying to leave the negative stuff behind! We hold on to so much – guilt, disappointment and things we wish would have turned out differently! I think this post is a good reminder at any time of the year to let go of things that no longer serve us and focus on the good that awaits! Thanks for this important reminder!

    It’s so important to leave negative emotions and experiences in the past. It’s great to learn and grow from them, but having negative feelings about past mistakes will not let you put your best foot forward in life. Great tips here!

    My wife and I have both shed the “dead wood” as we call it and life is so much easier without the negativity and clingers. I work on my anger on a regular basis as I am somewhat of a 0-100 in 1 secodn kind of person at times. The older I get the better I have become.

    I especially agree with eliminating surroundings that don’t uplift you. You don’t realize until you get out just how negative of an effect it had on you. Protecting your energy it so important.
