Everyone has made mistakes, and it can be difficult to forget about events and circumstances that caused us pain, and we can’t let those mistakes keep us from moving forward and trying new things.
If you feel anxieties about your past, remember that not everyone recognizes the event the same way.
In fact, chances are that your version of the story is entirely different (and probably much more exaggerated) than what other people recall.
Keep in mind also that mistakes and failures act as a way for us to learn and grow. When you’re having trouble letting go, take a step back and ask yourself what lessons can be learned from the event.
Some of the most significant discoveries throughout history are a result of mistakes! It’s all a matter of perspective.
Remember that the past doesn’t have to define you OR limit you.
“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
