There are several ways of coping with a problem. Work on it inside and out with healing and realization (which is sometimes necessary in order to remove it from your life), see it as the unchangeable but forgivable past, accept it, and then let it go.
It’s also good to look at where you are putting your focus. Are you dwelling on something that you cannot change? The past is gone, there’s nothing you can do about it but forgive yourself from it, as we are a new person in this present moment. Will the past still linger even when we are being positive? Yeah it might, but will it dominate the mind? We make the choice of what dominates the mind.
Continue along your path of enlightenment, gather all the gems of joy, lights of wisdom, and take them with you. Eventually you will be leaning more towards the positive. The voices of the ego, the past, the demons, doubts, fears, or whatever you like to call them will eventually become a faint noise in the far off distance.
Music to your ears will fill the airwaves into your vibration. You’re doing a great job on your path. Can you imagine if you decided a while back that you were helpless and you stayed there? Where would you be? What would your life look like? Would you be ill? You’re a phenomenal breakthrough more than your ego believes.
You are free, when you forgive yourself.
I believe in you. Let this become your belief as well.
With gratitude and appreciation,
