How to make peace with your past

If you have gone through any one of the following experience, then you should probably read this :
– Someone broke your heart
– Someone broke your trust
– You lost some great opportunity in life
– You made a biggest mistake of life
– You couldn’t stand up to someones expectation
– You are sad about some point in past
– You couldn’t achieve or clear any exam

Anything that seems to be troubling you at night. Something in the past that you are worried about.

We all know that past is in the past and one should forget it and move on in life.

How could one do that, when your heart has been cut into half. When your dreams have shattered.

You had worst experience in life of trusting someone and that person broke you into pieces that you can never get together again.

You can never trust someone again the same way. People say, give life a chance. You need to live in the present, forget about the past.

How could one do that, if the past is haunting you every single day. Every single moment, you feel it, happening over and over again.

You cannot control your mind, your emotions, that take control of you and you feel so depressed. You start to sweat. You cannot think clear.

You are now going into a dramatic stage of life.

Well, well, well enough of the problem description. That is what happens if you get stuck at some point in life and keep hitting the replay button.
Here is some small tricks and tips you can do, if you agree too. If you want to give yourself a chance, If you can just give it a one try, to live a happy life.
If you can let life make you help. If can let, the almighty help you. If only you let yourself a chance to see it clearly.
So welcome aboard. Drop of all your worries. Shred of all your burdens. Remove your gloves and glasses. BE NAKED!  Well not literally.
But let go all the thoughts of your past and give it a chance like a kid, who is just born. Fresh and Innocent.

OK, so what do you see now ? What is around you. What do you smell ? What do you hear ? This is life. Can you sense what is around you.
This the present. What are you doing ? Well you are reading this post! But given 5 minutes later, what are you going to do. What is that you do daily.
What is the one thing that troubles you at night before you sleep. Think about it now. What happened ? Is there anything you do about it but think ?
If thinking is all you can do and hit the replay button, then I would suggest you to think once in for all and think clear. Why do you keep thinking it over and over again. Was it your fault ? Are you the one to be blamed ? Did you not give good enough ? If so, well no worries buddy. May be you can do something good enough now.
Something that will over shadow your fault in past. Something that will truly make you happy today and tomorrow forever, that you will not think about the past.

If someone broke your heart, don’t worry. Think about what went wrong.

– If you are at fault. Love the world. Love the poor. Be you. Be kind. Wait for love to come back to you. Not that person, but the love that will make your life beautiful.

– If the other person has chosen for whatever reason to be away from you. Just forgive that person. May be it was not meant at all. May be it is just the way it is supposed to be. You cannot stop being a nice person. You cannot let bitterness intrude you and spread so much that you loose yourself. You be yourself. You are nice, be nice. If you are a jerk, be a jerk. But whatever happens, do not let the thoughts of that person haunt you, in a tragic way. Be happy about the memories. Make peace with the thoughts. Be cheerful about it.

If you made a biggest mistake of life. You ruined your life. Then well buddy, you do not need to worry about it. Take a step. One step at a time, what can you do to make it beautiful. Your life is in your hands, not your thoughts. If you think sad, bad and past, that will never change your present. You have do the tangibles. You have to something that is really affecting your life and not far from now, you will see that biggest mistake has taught you a biggest lesson of life and made you who you are. Think about the greatest people in life, you life. Don’t you think they made any mistake? They always do, but they never give up. They never back off. They be who they are and that’s what makes them successful. So cheer up buddy, Lets give it a try.

And everything that might be haunting you or something that is bothering you, please make peace with it and give life a new try. Hope you stop living in the past and enjoy the present to make your future beautiful.

  1. That’s a nice post. You have stated and defined the problems of the past really well and the solutions too 🙂

    But my friend, its easier said than done. ‘Past’ takes and also wastes lot of your time and effort. The past loves to haunt you in some way or the other; depending on your mood. The days when you are happy or overloaded with work, past keeps quite. But the days when you a little free, it just comes back with a bang.

    But also as they say, time is the best healer, the intensity of the past hitting you lessens as the time passes by.

    • It all depends from person to person, it is not mathematics, but biological and sometimes one medicine that works for someone doesn’t work for others.

      But if one makes a constant effort to let go of stuff that doesn’t have any possibility, then it is in the best interest of the person in question to either forget that completely if they can and if they cannot make peace with it. (Placebo medicines do work a lot of times)

      Past, is just a memory in your head and your head is capable of things much more than you think it can.

      Basically, we have short life and I don’t want any soul to dwell in past in a way that impacts their present and so the upcoming future.

      One may be sad, One may be broken, but to me there doesn’t seem to be a need to replay the past events and stop living in the present !

    • Cool, well if you got the answer, that’s where my purpose gets solved.

      Sometimes describing the problem helps to find the answers, as it is said the answer somewhere lies in the problem itself, read is multiple times.

      I am just being a Math Student.
