“Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness. But because you deserve peace.”
The way I think of the past is like written chapters to your unfinished book. Some people let the bad things that happened in their past define who they are today. Any negativity in my past I see them as lessons and and opportunities for me to grow into a better person. The great thing about the past being like written chapters of an unfinished book; is that you can go back and edit your past. You can change your perception of the story. You can remove the heavy weight of emotion and take something positive from it.
Don’t get stuck in the past, because if you’re stuck in the past. You’re not really living. Maybe in the past you was a victim in a situation. But you are not a victim today. You have got through it, how do I know? Because you are still here today and the only thing that’s keeping you in the past. Is that you are not letting go. Which is why you don’t feel life is getting better. Life is not happening to you, life is responding to you. So if you want life to get better. You must let go and remove any anger from your system, as it’s scientifically proven that anger poisons you’re system. So you need to change your attitude, your behaviour, your perception, you must rewrite your story and let go so you can start living and be present.
You deserve peace and happiness. So keep looking forward and find inspiration.
