You will only know that if you think of that thing you're trying to move on about and you feel nothing like what you have felt before.

You have to ask the question to yourself. No one can answer it better.

You are ready to move on when you feel you are ready. No one can tell you when to be ready - it is something you must determine for yourself.

We're allways ready to move on. Change is the only constant. Granted it can be up or down, but can take you where you want to be with yourself.

That is 100% up to you decide. Is there anything that is holding you back? If so, what? Can you find a way to loosen its grip on you?

You have to ask yourself that question. Until you can figure out the answer, do whatever it is that you feel like you have to do in order for you to try to move on. Let the feeling happen on its own and let your heart and mind tell you when it's time to let go.

If you have to ask that question and you are unsure of the answer, I don't think you are ready to move on yet. Don't focus too much instead focus on yourself and on your goals in life.

The only one who knows you're ready would be you. You can take as much time as you need. Moving on is not a race.

if you have to ask yourself the question, no. when you're ready, you won't think about it. it just happens, and when you think about it again, you are surprised to find how long it has been since it left your mind.

Yes You are. No One is Stopping you for real. You yourself are stuck in this. You can get free. Choice is always yours.

I wouldn't completely move on, I feel like you should move on when you feel 100% confident about the situation and you overcame what your problem was.

I know that moving on is a hard decision to make and it's a hard thing to do expecially if u don't want to leave but listen to me your strong and your a fighter I know it's hard trust me I know it really is but you can do it is time to move on time to stop hurting yourself time to heal and find more about what this life has to give I know this life maybe sucks but u can do it

That is entirely up to you- you don't want to push yourself into doing something bad, but then moving on is a great way to continue to happily and healthily live your life.

You're ready to move on from the moment it happens. It's the pain that stops you. Allow the pain to fade. Meanwhile, see what else you can do to help yourself move on. :) You'll be fine. All the best. :)

Only you can determine for yourself whether or not you are ready to let go of the past. Remember, the past holds important lessons and experiences, and can come with great memories. Moving on doesn't necessarily mean throwing something away. You can still appreciate it while understanding that you have to move forward with your life. Also, have more confidence in yourself. Think about what you truly want from this situation and take action depending on your own needs. It is completely okay to put yourself first and do what needs to be done. If you are trying to move on from something, I wish you the best of luck. Remember that your heath and wellbeing is important, and I believe in your strength.
