Make peace with your past🙏🏾🚶🏾♂️. For those who need balance read below and if you ever need advice speak to somebody or me🤝🏽🌍 There’s a balance to strike here. Specifically, you want to express negative emotions you have about your past (feelings like sadness, anger, jealousy) without merely wallowing in those emotions in an unending way. There are lots of different ways you can approach this exercise.
For example, you might speak directly to the person or people who played a role in your distress. However, this isn’t always possible or appropriate, so consider other methods as well.
You might try writing a letter that you never send, which gives you a sense of speaking to the relevant individual and getting the emotions out of your system.
Keeping a journal or speaking to a trusted friend can also be useful.
As you express your pain, give some thought to the role you played in creating the situation. While you shouldn’t blame or punish yourself, it’s important to take responsibility for your own contributions so you can learn how to be happier in the future.
When you’re still hurting, focusing on the present is easier said than done. There are things you can do to reach this goal, however, like taking up a daily mindfulness mediation habit that encourages you to turn into your current feelings, sensations, and experiences.
In time, this exercise will train your brain to exist more in the present than in the past or the future. In addition, ensuring you live a busy and fulfilling life goes a long way towards helping you to live in the present, as it simply reduces the time you have to even think about the past.
If you consistently find it difficult to stop yourself from dwelling, try designing a mantra or affirmation that can work as a cue (e.g. “That was my past and I am now focused on my present and my future”). When you feel your mind turning back to the past, say those words and anchor yourself in the present.
