How To Deal With Regrets & Let Go Of Them

closeup“Never look back unless you are planning to go that way.” ― Henry David Thoreau. The future is a direction and so is the past, you have to determine what direction you are facing and which path to follow.

“Today expect something good to happen to you no matter what occurred yesterday.” – Sarah Ban Breathnach. Let go of the pains of yesterday, today is a new day and it brings new opportunities to make something good happen.

When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” – Alexander Graham Bell. Be reminded that we live in a world of possibilities, believe this and embrace it and reinforce it everyday.

“Let go. Why do you cling to pain? There is nothing you can do about the wrongs of yesterday. It is not yours to judge. Why hold on to the very thing which keeps you from hope and love?” – Leo Buscaglia. Pain can be good, you may not be able to change your past, but learn from it and let it help you grow to be a better person.

“Right actions in the future are the best apologies for bad actions in the past.” – Tryon Edwards. Let your past fuel your actions in the present and future. Let it be a lesson that you build on, try your best to fix your past but don’t live there indefinitely.

“You did then what you knew how to do, and when you knew better, you did better.” – Maya Angelou. Who we are and what we know informs our decisions, have you heard the saying ‘I wish I knew then what I know now’? Thank God for growth and learning and change.
