PeaceWithThePastFB

I think one of the hardest things to do in life is to make peace with our pasts. So many of us let memories, words and actions from years ago punish us in the present moment. For me it had to do with forgiving each person who offended me. I had to let go of resentments. Then I had to forgive myself for all of the things I had done to hurt others including me. I wrote letters to a few people. Some I sent in the mail and others I simply burned afterwards. As I realized that I had made a lot of mistakes it helped me to allow others to do the same. I also made a conscious effort to not repeat the behaviors and actions that I had been taught. I became attuned to my feelings and learned to stop the patterns. And a huge realization for me was that I could not control other people or make them change. And I got some professional help. It’s all been worth it as at this time I am able to look back and focus on the good things….the pleasures…..the peace.
