Don’t let your Past define your Future. Acknowledge that you’ve let yourself feel negative for far too long. Your past does not have to determine your future despite the magnitude of your past mistakes. You can choose to look at them differently.
Instead of viewing them with constant regret, try to see them as valuable lessons that you can use today.
“Holding on is believing that there’s a past; letting go is knowing that there’s a future.” -Daphne Rose Kingma
Believe that you can make it and start by acknowledging, and believing that you can. And tell yourself “Yes I can”.
Understand that just because you were treated unfairly by others does not mean that you need to keep on suffering. You must stop reliving the past in your head over and over again.
In fact, it is often your mind constantly replaying a past negative event that causes you substantially more suffering than the actual event itself.
Remove all fears that’s resting on your shoulders and learn that it’s okay to let go. Learn and know that always looking backwards to your past life will not help you move forward.
Understand and believe that you are now free from your past and concentrate more on your future. In other words, your past does not have to define you or your future.
2 Corinthians 5:17-18 says: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation”
Trust in your God, trust in yourself, trust that you will overcome, and trust that there are people in your life who will love and support and fight with you, no matter how low you feel.
Change your attitude towards negative thinking and give yourself a chance to let what has happened to you in the past shape you in positive ways instead of only negative.
And finally. Allow light back into your life through the people who love you, through exercise or meditation, positive self-talk, and faith.
Simply believe that you can move on and be okay. And please don’t let your Past define your Future.
