Many factors can ruin your life and prevent you from living the present moment. It can be grief, family drama, a breakdown, an accident or a trauma from the past. Sometimes memories are a constant attraction to the past. But our life is here and now! Do you remember too much? What can be done so that the past does not interfere with the present? How to make peace with memories? How to accept them serenely? This article helps you get out of the memory trap.
Acceptance, an essential step
Acceptance is a very important step in order to move forward, and above all to heal. If you refuse to admit reality, you will remain stuck in the same place. You will not change anything in the long run; what you must do is show humility, whatever your history. You must accept the situation, even if you think that what is happening to you is someone’s fault. Remember also that it is never good to repress emotions. Denying them is like locking them deep inside us, so learn to accept your past. If you don’t accept it, you will fight and struggle. But after all, what is done is done. You will not be able to free yourself from an emotion, an experience, a feeling if you refuse to admit it. Indeed, how could you free yourself from something invisible to your eyes? We can therefore say that acceptance is the sign that you are evolving.
Forgive yourself to heal from your past
As painful as your past may be, forgiving yourself and others is one of the most powerful ways to heal. You will hurt yourself by living your whole life with anger, resentment and hatred. You destroy yourself. And if you continue like this, you will face more consequent troubles. Indeed, by persisting in a negative path, serious diseases that can lead to death can appear. So our advice is to wake up, and enjoy the life you have. You may not know this, but others would like to have your life. On the psychological level, forgiving one’s mistakes is also an important passage. Also, be humble if you have harmed someone intentionally or unintentionally. Go to him and ask his forgiveness. Items with soothing and repairing properties could help you through all these steps.
