Let go of your regrets

Regrets will only hold you back in life. If you spend all your time thinking about the past, you will miss the present and the future.You cannot change what you did or did not do in the past, so let it go. Each time you experience a negative thought about your past, challenge it. If you want to have some fun and visualize letting go of your regrets, try writing down each regret on a piece of paper and then burying it in your backyard or burning it in a bonfire with friends. Acknowledge and accept the feelings associated with your regret. This helps prompt you to think about strategies you could use to minimize the pain of similar future experiences.Try to learn from a past decision that you perceive has gone wrong. If your regret is related to a major past decision, you need to give yourself time to heal from the consequences of that choice. Constantly thinking about it and ruminating will keep the negative thoughts and feelings ever-present. Focus on things that will relax, nourish, and energize yourself in positive ways.

“We don't have to be defined by the things we did or didn't do in our past. Some people allow themselves to be controlled by regret. Maybe it's a regret, maybe it's not. It's merely something that happened. Get over it.”
