How to Let Go of the Past

Our past experiences can have a significant impact on our daily lives. We often base our decisions on events that we have witnessed and also dwell on past experiences or people. Letting go is never easy. It may be hard for some and even harder for others.

I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.

Carl Jung

I’ve struggled with ridding myself of guilt, shame, and grief. I’ve struggled with freeing myself from mistakes, past relationships, and worries about the future. It’s not that I haven’t tried. Believe me, I’ve tried really hard.

It’s frustrating because I’m fully aware of the importance of letting go and moving on. I know that attachment is the reason we suffer. I know that past pain, anger, and resentment holds us back. I know that holding on to the unwanted blocks the wanted from coming in.

We do not heal the past by dwelling there; we heal the past by living fully in the present

Marianne Williamson

I came across these steps and some of them have helped me. Use whatever works for you!

Where focus grows, energy flows.

Tony Robbins

Focus on the wanted, not the unwanted. Imagine, visualize, and fantasize what you’d love to have instead in your life!
