How to let go of the past? How to forgive? We just have to realize a few essential things. Then happiness can become our natural state as we learn to live more in the present moment. You deserve to let go because you deserve to be at peace.Regrets. Resentments. Jealousy. Guilt. Shame. Embarrassment. These are just a few of the negative emotions we feel when we’re stuck in the past.

If you’re here now, I imagine you’re ready to let go of all this, but perhaps you’re not sure HOW to do it. This article will give you some valuable insights.

1. Mistakes and Unfortunate Happenings Are Not “Wrong” or “Bad”

They Are Here to Teach Us Valuable Lessons So They We May Grow Into More Peaceful and Loving People.

Just because we don’t WANT something to happen doesn’t mean that it can’t serve us. We shouldn’t be so quick to judge, because sometimes the seemingly “bad” things turn out to be the greatest BLESSINGS…

That was exactly the case for me.

Back in 2011, I hit “rock bottom” and was on the verge of suicide. I was full of anxiety, shame, regret, jealousy, and anger. I was hopeless and desperate for a miracle…

My life turned around only when I began to see the OPPORTUNITY that my suffering provided. It was an opportunity for me to actually learn what it takes to be happy and successful in life. It was the motivating force that propelled me into a MUCH brighter future.

Always keep on your mind the question, “What can I learn from this?” This will keep you humble and open to opportunities for personal growth and evolution, even in the midst of great setbacks and challenges.

Every situation and circumstance holds hidden blessings for us. We just have to suspend our judgments, stop complaining, and look for the good. I promise, if you look, you’ll find it.


2. The Quickest Way to Become Stressed is to Focus on What You Can’t Control.

And What CAN You Control Besides Your Attitude and Actions in This Very Moment?

We must realize that it is useless to try changing other people or the past. The past is dead and gone. It serves only as a learning tool. Other people are not within our control either. Wanting to change either of these things only sets us up for endless misery and unhappiness.

All you have to do is see clearly that the present moment, the “NOW”, is all that actually exists in your life. The past is gone, the future isn’t here; literally, all you have is right now…

What can you ever control except your attitude or actions in the present moment?

Nothing, so why worry about anything other than that?

Your feelings in the present are not determined by the past. They are determined by how you choose to see it and whether you choose a positive outlook or a pessimistic one. You must break the chains of the past by choosing not to repeat it.

Your future is not destined to look like your past did. Your future depends on the attitude and actions that you choose in the present.

At any moment, you can choose again. You can catch yourself being stuck in the past and feelings of resentment, anger, or guilt, and in that very moment you can choose to let it go.


3. Forgiveness is For YOU, Not Them.

You Deserve Peace, So Let Yourself Have It By Letting Go.

Often times, we hold on to resentments because we think that other people don’t deserve our forgiveness.

We think we are punishing them by our non-acceptance, but in reality, we are only harming ourselves…

WHO has to carry around that anger? Them or you?

Negative emotions actually cause the release of toxic stress hormones within your body. When you hold onto grudges or resentments, you literally poison yourself.

You deserve peace. You deserve to feel good every day. So let yourself have it by forgiving everyone and everything, including yourself, without exception.
