What’s in the past is in the past. It does in no way have an impact on today, tomorrow or next year. Would you keep on watching the same bad film over and over again expecting it to change each time? No, so why let the past dictate your future?
1. Say goodbye to toxic memorabilia.
Get rid of the reminders. If you’re still holding onto something that holds bad memories then you are not fully over it. why would you keep it if you didn’t care? I used to have this notebook that I’d write in whenever I had negative thoughts. It was cathartic at first but soon became toxic when I kept looking back at the stuff I’d written. All it did was rip open wounds and start the healing process from the beginning. You’ll find that when you can let go of the things that once held bad memories you can start moving forward because you’ve allowed yourself to heal and move on.
2. Find your passion.
Throw yourself into something you love. If you’re passionate about something spend more time pursuing it. The more time you spend doing the stuff you love, the more positive energy you’ll create. Making you feel better in general. Blogging and photography always improve my mood when I’m in a negative space. It gives me something positive to focus on!
3. It’s temporary darling.
Realise this is a temporary situation. There will come a time where this will be nothing but a distant memory. One day you’ll look back and wonder why you ever gave that situation so much thought. Focus on the people in your life that mean something to you. They will be there to catch you when you fall.
