Since you left me, I never really tried
To put my life to where it should belong
And I've always let the past gone by
I'm realizing that it could be wrong

But now I fin'lly knew
I had to let it go
To make way for a brighter tomorrow

So now I'm leavin' yesterday behind
And fin'lly I've made up my mind
So let the mem'ries stay away
And think about today
I'm leavin' yesterday behind
'Cause now I'll try to live my life once more
The way I did before

Since I know that I never will forget
The memories that made my yesterday
I will try not to let it interfere
The choices I will make along the way

'Cause I'm not livin' in a world of fantasy
I'm here now in the world of reality

So now I'm leavin' yesterday behind
And fin'lly I've made up my mind
So let the mem'ries stay away
And think about today
I'm leavin' yesterday behind
'Cause now I'll try to live my life once more
The way I did before

So now I'm leavin' yesterday behind
And fin'lly I've made up my mind
So let the mem'ries stay away
And think about today
I'm leavin' yesterday behind
'Cause now I'll try to live my life once more
Just the way I did before

    My husband and I have been married for four years when he committed adultery, with a teenage minor. I was broken and it's not easy to move on after everything, less try to learn to forgive. This is when I realized that for me to move on I have to forgive him, not to condone the act or to erase his big mistake but I decided to forgive him to set myself free from all the hatred and bitterness that's building up inside me. I did it for myself, so that I can move on and start letting go of those painful memories.
    This experience taught me that letting go doesn't only refer to a person but may also refer to a dark past that's been pinning you down and consuming your whole being. Right now I am preparing to move on, whether with or without him.

    Leave the past, you can't do anything about it.. It's hard to move on but you have to do it because if you don't you will keep hurting yourself.

    It's not easy not to fall for a guy who had sacrificed himself of his unconditional love for his partner but at the end of it, always the girl who is left very broken and very pathetic because she cannot do anything once her guy does not love her anymore. This song is dedicated to all the girls who have been broken many times but still do not close their doors waiting for a chance to be loved again and again! Pls. Do comment here for pieces of advice.

    Leaving yesterday behind by accepting yourself today and see your brighter tomorrow; letting go of the situation you are in the negative positions so you can move on to your positive outlook in life.

    Letting go of someone isn't that easy but leaving those memories you had is one way to move on... And live your life as if nothing happens in the past :)
