As simple as this sounds, sometimes it really is hard to let go of our pasts. They follow us with every decision we make, always on the back of our minds.
The brain uses our past memories as a guide on how to deal with situations. But could that be repeating the same mistakes over and over again? We are supposed to learn from our past, but what if it just leads us to the same future?
Anyone who’s dated an ex more than once (ahem…me) knows the past belongs in the past. It can be hard to let go of the past which brought us many happy memories, but instead of dwelling on what happened (or should have happened) we need to keep our eyes on the prize: who we will become!
Don’t hate your past! Carrie says let who you used to be go…because who you were does not always define who you will become! Start fresh, work hard, and don’t hold anything against yourself!
