Letting Go: How to Heal Your Past
STOP FIXATING ON WHAT HAPPENED
Stop trying to fix it, stop trying to change it, stop fearing it, stop thinking about it, stop wishing it would change, stop wishing it would have been different, stop ruminating about it, stop thinking you could’ve done something different, stop demanding justice, stop wanting revenge, stop needing to repair it, stop the impression management, stop trying to fix everyone, stop trying to make it better, stop trying to make up for it.
LET GO OF WHAT CANNOT BE CHANGED
Let go of it, let go of the resentment, let go of the hate, let go of the anger, let go of the injustice, let go of the rage, let go of the shame, let go of the guilt, let go of the pain, let go of the failure, let go of apathy, let go of the loss, let go of the rejection, let go of your vice like grip, let go of your expectations, let go of your demands, let go of your hard heart, let go of could have, let go of should have, let go of perfect, let go of fear, let go of control.
LEARN TO ACCEPT A DIFFERENT PATH
Learn to release it, learn how to move on, learn acceptance, learn forgiveness, learn that control is an illusion, learn that it cannot be altered, learn to grieve it, learn to trust again, learn to lean upon your higher power, learn new truths, learn self-acceptance, learn how powerful you are, learn that you will be ok, learn to change, learn to be happy.
FORM A NEW DESTINY
Form a different future, form something new, form new hopes, form new dreams, form a new life, form new experiences, form new spiritual life, form a taste for new foods, form new adventures, form new beliefs, form new boundaries, form new friends, form a new family, form new habits, form new hangouts, form new memories.
Your future does not have to be like your past, for the past was not always yours to control. The present is yours for the taking, your new future is yours for the making.”
