can I relate to this one. How often do
you dwell in the past? I’m much better
at it than I used to be, I've dealt with a lot of issues that I used to review over
and over – but I still find times when I let myself get put off, put down, or
upset by the things of the past. I acknowledge
that I have done less than spectacular things in the past, things I’m not proud
of, and also things that were just the mistakes of a young and immature
person. I've also done things during my
period of depression that I beat myself up about and I have to try and remember
that I really wasn't myself at those times.
It is very important that we learn from the past, that we continue to
grow and move forward, but the key is to move forward. We have to learn and then let go, take the
lesson and make something new – otherwise we just stagnate in a pool of
loathing, self hate or self delusion that isn't good for anyone.
