This weeks post is something I can guarantee a lot of us need to do weather we’d like to admit it or not, letting go of the past!
I don’t know about you guys but I’m awful at letting things go, not in terms of materialistic things but in terms of feelings and situations have a big effect on me and my life even if too others they’d mean nothing. Plenty would say I’m just over sensitive and I suppose I am but as the years pass I’m starting to realise that things in my past are becoming a road block in me moving forward even though these things/people are no longer part of my life.
I saw this quote and it made me really think about myself and sadly made me realise that I’ve probably been stuck in the past since I was about 15. Not by choice but because certain people in my past really effected how I see myself and made me believe I wasn’t good enough but by still thinking and dwelling on that I’ve not only let that person rob me of happiness in my past but I’m also letting them dictate my future happiness.
So not matter what it is from the past that you’re holding onto be it a person, memories, bad experience or regrets, ask yourself something ‘Is it helping you or having a positive effect on your life? The probability is that it’s doing nothing but holding you back because while you’re still looking back at something that you can’t change, You’re missing out on all the amazing and special moments that you could be having in the here and now and also the ones that lay ahead in your future!
So I hope if you’re struggling with feelings or memories from your past then you will join me from this day forward to close that chapter and begin reading and enjoying the chapter of your life that lays ahead ❤
