Think of it this way.
The more we obsess about the past, what’s happened and can’t be changed or undone, the more of our finite future is wasted.
Talk to a newly separated person and you’re likely to hear them double down on everything bad that is happening.
Some of this is normal, but to continue to waste life in the past is to rob you of your dreams and ambitions. To prevent you from meeting new people and starting new and interesting careers.
Moving on to all the potentially good things the future holds is not a warm and fuzzy feeling at first.
It’s a commitment to stop wasting time on that which cannot be changed.
Get it out of your system.
But leave it all where it belongs – in the past where it can no longer hurt your chances of future happiness and fulfillment.
