Even though joy is not a long-term goal, but a goal that we hope to achieve over and over again, it’s still important to remain content throughout life. A part of being confident in yourself is being pleased with your skin, your identity, and the person you intend to become later on.
Nevertheless, many people are grieving their past, which effects their present and their future. Given that our present self is a result of our past choices, it is totally reasonable that we are influenced by it.
Nevertheless, does our present self have to influence our future?
You are what you are today because of the choices you made in the past, whether positive or negative. Sometimes the terrible actions outweigh the good ones, and we end up regretting what we did, wishing we could go back and fix everything. Despite that, that is absurd, and is unlikely to happen.
If you want to help yourself and other people, you should relinquish the past, stop worrying about the future so much, and focus on your current choices.
The present moment is all we have, and the future and the past are nonexistent concepts that we shouldn’t dwell upon so much. You should focus most of your efforts on the present, and in this way, you can build a better life for yourself.
Every person dealing with their past should learn and let go of what is holding them back. You should forgive yourself and take responsibility for your actions. You are now ready to develop once you have done this.
In addition, you must start right away. Simply saying this won’t help. It’s important to have a direction as you embark on your growth journey.
You cannot change what has been stated and done no matter what you do. You can think about the big picture all you want, but that won’t help you achieve anything.
If you were able to do it again, what would you change? There would be a few things you could change.
Take the initiative and do what you believe is right this time. If there are things that can’t really be changed and can’t be left in the past, I encourage you to acknowledge them and make an honest attempt to make amends.
Despite the fact that you cannot change the past, you can allow it to transform you. Take all you have experienced, and all you are experiencing right now, as an exercise, and start developing. No one but you can learn every second of your life, because it is an individual exercise.
