“What happened in the past that was painful has a great deal to do with what we are today, but revisiting this painful past can contribute little or nothing to what we need to do now.”
We all have some pain from our past, but it is important that we don’t let that pain punish our present or hamper our future. The pain of holding on is greater than the pain of letting go.
We will grow much stronger and find peace once we stop picking at the old wounds. Instead of consciously replaying painful memories over and over in our head. We hold stress in our minds and bodies, potentially creating serious health problems, and accept that state of tension as the norm.
Our past has given us the strength and the awareness we have today. Our wounds are our wisdom. Let them heal. Let them repair.
In order for this to occur, we must know why we felt the way we did, what we learned from it, and why we no longer need to feel that way. It is about accepting the past, letting it be, and moving on.
No matter what your path is, use every moment of your life for improving your self. Love your world. Let go of hatred. Let good into your life.
‘If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.’
