“Moving on” is a simple expression but with very complex meanings.
It is usually associated with bereavement or the breakup of a relationship. The problem for many people, especially those who are not religious or have no spiritual faith, is how to face up to loss.
It is difficult when experiencing a loss of any kind to believe that your life is not finished, and it is hard to see any future.
But as you will understand from browsing through these quotes selected by our LifeDaily team, others have had to face up to the reality of loss – and move on.
Perhaps reading what others have endured can give you strength to cope with your own grief or loss:
