“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~ Melody Beattie; American author of self-help books on codependent relationships.
“Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” ~ George Santayana; Spanish-American philosopher, essayist, poet, and novelist.
There is no more self-destruction and constant suffering of the mind than that of constantly regretting and thinking about past errors and bad experiences, because this is feeding the ego who constantly likes to feel like a victim and hinder any real progress that means moving on and becoming wiser.
The pain of the past and of the present also is there, in the midst of our experiences, for a noble and inspirational reason; and that reason is to help us evolve and absorb wisdom to move on and become better human beings. To learn and embrace all self-love.
All fear we have lingering in our minds and that we experience is either made by us a blessing or a curse, and we must embrace it and use it as a blessing to become stronger, thus grateful of past experiences of whatever nature.
Everything and anything in life, even if your ego cannot understand it now, is a lesson to be learned, it is for our minds to learn acceptance and intelligence in every step we take to move on with our lives.
Life flows just like a body of rich and fresh water, and your ways of thinking, your ways of behaving and interacting in your own life must match this, must flow with life, along life, through life, become one with life (and whatever happens in it); that is, just accept what you cannot change, learn from mistakes and past experiences, do not just rush into things but analyze and stop reacting without truly understanding something.
This acceptance is to nurture ourselves and become one with life itself, because in this acceptance we see and experience pain, fear, and all heartbreak as a lesson; however, in order for us to see and accept this, we must tame our ego and not become victims of its nonsense.
So, learn to be wiser and see beyond all the past experiences and challenges you had; then, be grateful and accept the wisdom in these past experiences.
