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!

This last task is the most difficult. Rather give me an electric circuit to design than to write an assay. It took me 7 days, a little bit a day. But here it go’s.  It feels so good to have started something, the Kaizen Challenge, and completed it. It is good Read more...

I have always somehow felt the need and want to make a change to my life, but have never been able to succeed or progress in any attempt. I have bought diaries, planners, used computer diaries, completed personal development courses, got excited, only to use them for a short while and then they become ornaments. Read more...

I cried to God for years and asked him to free me from the slavery of using force in my working environment and everything that is financial related. Of course I didn’t use the exact words then, but I experienced the slavery of working day and night and to still bring in only a small and very limited amount of money each month. I know what that Read more...

If I can describe it in this way what the Kaizen Challenge has meant to me. Previously in my life it felt like I was work in the change room of the bokke cleaning their boots for them and working hard for them. In Kaizen challenge I have started to see that I am part of the bok team and I am starting to run out of the tunnel and seeing the daylight, the field and Read more...
