10 WAYS TO HEAL FROM YOUR PAST

10 WAYS TO HEAL FROM YOUR PAST and move on with your life to make a lot of progress and to make your personal development a priority.

  • Don’t run from it: Running away from your past does not make it vanish or go away. The best thing to do is to not run from it, find out why it triggers you and heal from it. The past is not a life sentence, contrary to that, it can be a huge blessing no matter how bad it was when we decide to learn from it.
  • Come to terms with it: coming to terms with your past means that you accept that what has happened has already happened and there is nothing you can do to go back and change it. Accept it, count it as one of your blessings because the experience has made you who you are.
  • Distance yourself from reminders: Some things tend to remind us of our bitter past in a very triggering way that is unhealthy for us but mostly this happens when we have not really come to terms with it, accepted that it happened and learned from it. It mostly happens when we are still struggling with it. So as you are still healing from your past traumas, distance yourself from triggers.
  • Practice mindfulness: Practicing mindfulness means that you become aware of the present moment and you do not allow your mind to wander aimlessly to think about the past or the future. Practicing mindfulness means being in the present moment and enjoying it.
  • Don’t wait for an apology: Sometimes, we want an apology from an offender before we decide that we have to move on but this does not have to be so. Waiting fro an apology makes you a slave to the offender. Forgiving is for yourself and for your own peace of mind so love yourself enough to move on with or without an apology.
  • Pick out the lessons only: Sometimes, we are tempted to remember the gory, unpleasant details of our past but this should not be so. Forget the ugly details that happened and only choose to remember and dwell on the lessons. Yes, it is a choice and you can do it.
  • Establish boundaries: Establishing boundaries can mean separating yourself from the people involved in the traumatizing past and/or separating yourself from the environment that brings you those triggers.
  • Have a new perspective on your past: Change the outlook and decide that instead of negativity, you are going to see only the lessons and the blessings. Think about the fact that those lessons can be used to encourage others, to become stronger yourself and to love yourself even more fiercely.
  • Talk to a loved one: Sometimes, we may need to talk to someone about it especially a loved one that knows us personally and can understand us. If you need to let it all out then don’t hesitate to talk to a trusted, loved one.
  • See a therapist: You can seek professional, paid help. A therapist is there to help you offload those bitterness and become free from it. Deal with it from the root and choose to not let anything stop your dreams.
