How to Let Bygones Be Bygones

Deep down you know that there is simply nothing you can do to change the past. No matter how many times you wish you'd done something differently, the past will always remain the past.  

You must find a way to, once and for all, be done with your regretful feelings. When you continue to fret over the past, you allow negative feelings to consume more and more of your life. Once you've put a stop to it, you can think positively again and your future will be brighter.
 
Getting Caught Up In The Past
 
It's easy to get caught up in the past. Nobody's perfect and, no matter how hard you try, you'll still continue to make mistakes. It's how you handle the mistakes that will make the true difference in your life.
 
If you've made a mistake or suffered a tragedy in the recent past, don't allow the tragedy to replay in your head over and over. You'll continue to relive the negative feels as if you were continually going through the tragedy. No one deserves this! Instead, you have two choices, you can actively work on correcting your mistake, or you can let the feelings go because they're not helpful to you in that moment.
 
Learn From Your Mistakes
 
There are lessons to be learned in every mistake you make no matter how minor it might be. The goal is to work on discovering what these lessons are.
 
When negative feelings surround you regarding your past, focus on the lesson learned. Maybe you would have never learned that lesson without the mistake. And now that you've gained this wisdom you can avoid making that mistake again in the future.
 
You can take everything one step further and do more with the lessons you've learned. Perhaps you can raise awareness by telling others about your experience. If you can help others avoid the same mistakes, you'll be doing something great for the world. It'll also help you feel better about the situation.
 
Avoid Resentment
 
You need to do your best to avoid resentment and all negative emotions. Resentment is a poisonous emotion that can go out of control if you don't deal with it. You've probably heard of people who have had a falling out with a family member and resentment keeps them apart for the better part of their lives. Think about all the good times they've missed out on because of this bitterness!
 
Let It Go
 
Depending on what you've gone through, there may be a mourning period associated with your situation, but you'll eventually need to let it go. Since you know that nothing can change the past, letting go can prove to be very liberating.
 
When you let it all go, you learn to forgive yourself and forgive others. Forgiveness is such an important thing to promote in your life. It allows you to grow as a person and blossom forward to enjoy all that life has to offer. You weren't meant to sit around mourning the past no matter how tragic it's been for you.
 
How Negative Thinking Hurts You
 
When it comes down to it, sometimes you keep telling yourself you're over it but the negative thinking keeps creeping back into your life. You need to fully realize that the only person you're hurting is yourself.
 
Let's say you've hurt someone's feelings. You may think about this day and night until you can't take it anymore, and you have to seek this person out to apologize. The person might not even remember what happened, or they may just accept your apology. The point is you suffered with negative thoughts until you sought forgiveness.
 
There's no need to cause yourself severe suffering because you made a mistake, instead seek peace and resolution, then move forward with your head held high!

Do I feel like one in a million? A resounding yes! Do I regard myself as superior to my contemporaries? No! I only think that I may be able to use my talents more productively (sometimes).   I am a hard of hearing, hands-on father of 2 Angels (2 and 4 years). I can only meaningfully communicate in a person to person basis. In group situations I am like a Read more...

I have realized that "I" am the key to my destiny.  No one else.   I can do whatever I want to, whenever I want to and with whom ever I want to. There should be nothing that stops me from it or disables me from doing, giving, having and Read more...

The Kaizen Challenge is a time I can truly describe as the most exiting time of my life. A new birth for Marius Louis Adams! I grew up in a small mining town, where most people I known’s vision didn’t even reach the end of town. My life was mediocre. I never challenged myself. I never thought I could achieve anything that my parents or I could be proud of.  But then I committed my life to the Lord on 1 Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-11-20 What governments don’t want you to know about inflation. Critics say that inflation is a form of theft from the people. Not just any old critics either! The most famous is probably John Maynard Keynes. Keynes is known as the father of our modern economic system. He said that inflation is a way to secretly confiscate an important part of the wealth of citizens. He said inflation is a hidden and destructive thing. And he said that it goes almost entirely... Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-12-03 The economics of gaining weight This week I completed my 262nd lesson for my mentorship students. I wrote about something I would like to share with you, too. It’s about the economics of what you weigh. Your weight is a business matter. (Now that is a fresh way to look at it.) There’s so much I would like to say but space is limited. So here are some facts that I hope will get you thinking - You eat more when you are fatter. It takes more calories to... Read more...
