Free Your Mind From The Past

The art of letting go, forgiveness, and acceptance are so important for our mental well-being.

Many of us carry around too many regrets and mistakes from the past. But you can’t change what has already happened. You need to learn to accept it and let it go.  You have to free your mind from the weight of the past. Your past experiences (good or bad ones) occurred to mature you, teach you, to make you a better you. Forgive yourself, accept what happened, and then let go. Don’t waste so much energy thinking about the past, you have better things to spend your energy on.

Make peace with your past. Make peace with yourself.

It’s easy to look back and question decisions you have made in the past, but it’s unfair to punish yourself for them. You can’t blame yourself for not knowing back then what you know now, and the truth is you made each decision for a reason based on how you were feeling at the time.

You don’t have to have an answer to every feeling or situation. That’s not how life works. We figure it all out by just living, by struggling, by missing an opportunity, by seeking advice, and by not taking it. We learn what’s important and what isn’t. Sometimes we have no idea what to do and it’s scary but it’s okay.

Forgive yourself first. Release the need to replay a negative situation over and over again in your mind. Stop reviewing and reliving your mistakes. Don’t remind yourself of what you should have, could have, or would have been. Move on.

As we grow up, we learn and evolve. Maybe the person you are now would have done things differently back then, or maybe you are the person you are now because of the decisions you made back then. Trust your journey; it’s all going to make sense soon.

At some point, you just have to let go and move on. It might be the hardest thing in the world to do, but you have to let go. Some people, jobs, situations, and things just aren’t going to be meant for you, no matter how much you wish they were. But, know that it’s okay for things to not work out. Nobody’s life is a straight line that makes perfect sense. Everybody has twists and turns, and everyone has to turn around every now and then.

Look at it this way: everything you’re currently doing is the past that you’ll be talking about in your future. At the same time, everything you’re currently doing is the future you’ll be living. How you choose to live in this moment is what creates your past and your future. The funny thing is, a lot of us are stuck in the past, not realizing that now is the only time we truly have to create our lives

You are not your past. You are not defined by it. But you can let it strengthen you.

Just trust the process. Always.
