Guilty as charged!
I have done this many times in my lifetime but luckily as I have matured, I have learned to let the past stay in the past and to give up negative, stressful memories that take me away from living my life in peace.
Seldom does good come out of living in these memories. These memories force us to become stagnant and either we are afraid to move on or just don't want to.
It can be terribly hard to let these memories go, we have often invested a good amount of time and emotions in keeping them alive.
A good rule of thumb is - if it doesn't enhance your live, provide a positive pathway forward in your life or all you to feel peace in your life...
GET RID OF THEM and LET THAT SHIT GO!
Seriously, let it go!!!
Once we do this, we are no longer prisoner to the negatively they offer, instead we are free from their pain and the suffering they have caused and we are able to better think, process and move forward with your lives.
If we are always looking behind us, we miss the beauty of the moment because we are fixated on the past.
LET THAT SHIT GO!
