What is the point of recounting a memory that no longer has a place in your life?
Long question but deserving of an answer. I find myself sometimes recounting memories of people and certain situations that no longer are a part of my life. I noticed that envisioning the future for some aspects of my life can get difficult if I am constantly reminding myself of the Past. Although I cannot go back to those places or people physically, that past world is still real mentally. To overcome that is to change the conversation within my mind.
“I am not with that person anymore. I will find love again.”
“I do not hang with those group of people anymore. I will engage in healthy friendships.”
“I am not the same person anymore. I have changed for the better.”
I am working on not becoming stressed over things that I cannot control. I cannot control another person’s emotions. I cannot control past events. I CAN CONTROL how I react to a past memory…..I DO NOT HAVE TO GIVE IT ATTENTION. MY FUTURE IS CALLING…
