Letting go

how might one go about "letting go" of things that have happened in the past to be able to move on in their lives?

  • Everyone lets go in their own way. I basically boils down to making the decision to move on and let go.

    You have to accept that what happened, happened and there is nothing that can be done to change it. Remind yourself every day that there is no changing the past and that only you are in control of how you feel and how you react.

    You have to make the decision to move on and stick to it.

  • I think it would help to just be conscious of when you are letting it come back up. Figure out what triggers it, and what you think you are going to gain by bringing it back to the surface again.

    In my opinion, it is not fair for you or the other person involved to hang on to something forever. It is going to make you live the same pain, and them live the same mistake. If you have decided to forgive and move on, you HAVE to let it go...if you cannot (and there are certainly times in life where that is rightfully the case), then the relationship needs to end.

  • Go into the woods and beat the crap out of a tree with a baseball bat while you think of your past
