"Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them." -My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Letting go isn't blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts and doesn't leave emptiness, hurt or sadness. Letting go isn't about loss and it's not defeat. To let go is to cherish memories, and overcome and move on.
