Do you find that you can’t stop thinking about the past? I know how bitter it is to be plagued by unwanted events of the past. Often we spend hours thinking about those unpleasant memories, memories of pain. However, you can’t change what happened; so let it go, and stop thinking about the past.
The past no longer exists. Thinking about it only saddles you with an even bigger burden. In the process, you fail to realize your potential in the present and miss living up to your expectations. Every moment spent thinking about the past is a total waste, which will lead to further suffering. So, enjoy what you have and gear up to make the best out of it.
Think of the past as sealed for good. Thinking about it can only negatively affect your present. Your present is the only one thing that matters. Focus your efforts to make it beautiful and flourish. Living in the past makes you unhappy and distressed, while being in the present ensures the future you want to live.
