When you choose to live in the past, you have to be strong and sure that what you are going through is something constructive and is something you can build on, use it to your ability not your destruction !!
Why do we choose to cling to the past, do we feel comfortable, more at ease knowing what there is, or do we live in the past, because we are afraid of the unknown, is it really better to suffer with the known or suffer for the unknown ?
It takes courage to move into tomorrow or even today, and it takes courage to stay and suffer, so on a normal day, what would you choose ? To move forward would always be the positive choice, until you make that move, you will have no idea regarding all the wonderful things that are waiting to come into your life, when you make this decision you will feel the space opening up to you and your new life ahead, we always have to make room for anything new we want in our life, when we wish to replace something we have to remove the other to make the space it needs, we need to clear the path we wish to travel, where will it lead, you will never know unless you take that first step.
If the past you keep returning to is upsetting and sad, why would you want to deny yourself happiness ?, you are worthy of happiness, each and every day. When you see for yourself your worth and birthright to be happy in what ever area of your life you seek, things will change, until then you will just repeat the same pattern time and time again, to achieve a change you need to change certain things and areas in your day-to-day living and thinking., this is your choice and no one else can make that decision for you, what you have to remember is it takes the same energy and courage as it does to continue with your suffering, it is a question of mind-set. If you are struggling with an episode from your past, are you ready to make that change ? Are you ready to make that promise to yourself.
