Past can harm and heal
These thoughts may be shocking to you, but if you can read this calmly you may discover yourself in one way or several.
No one likes to be told what's wrong with them.
They always have to find out what's wrong with them on their own and on their own terms as people want control over their own lives.
First everyone must see for themselves.
The real truth is that there are always things wrong with us that need attention before these things raise real destruction within our bodies or souls.
No one wants to be lost, but until one admits to themselves they are lost in one thing or several, no real progress in fixing the issue can be truly made.
Many of us have had exceptionally difficult lives all of our lives or in portions of our lives.
It doesn't really matter when difficulties arose. What is important is that they affect you now.
When thinking of our pasts, we may choose two options, to become bitter or to become better.
Is it really worth the sorrow, pain or confusion to dig up the past?
Yes, if you can see how it all affects you today, in this moment.
No if you just rehash the same thing, relive that moment in the past over and over and over again, feeling worse and worse as you do so.
It is as if you are on a merry go round to nowhere, stuck in one spot and never moving on from that point on.
Everyone of course, is free to do that, but in doing that, what are you really accomplishing for yourself?
Is it causing negative stress or is it positive?
Can you break this cycle?
Acknowledging the past can cause both positive and negative emotions.
Remembering past events and not reacting with either positive or negative, can be the key for learning on how to deal with our pasts.
The past is the past. It can never change.
How we react in the here and now can be life changing in ways we don't know about but others may see in us.
Without sorrow repentance cannot occur.
All of us are stuck in one area of our lives or another, but we can't move out or on without seeing it.
Once we do, there is a better chance of moving on.
I say the same thing essentially over and over but in different ways in the hope that somewhere along this reading you will see a step towards healing occur.
