I No Longer Live in my Past

It feels damn good to be released from my past. For so many years I never thought I would be able to release that pain and it would live in me forever. It took something drastic with the birth of my last son to make me realize I have to let go.

I struggled with a lot growing up, from feeling neglected, always feeling less important, that my voice didn’t matter, and never worthy of being anything or loved. I carried those feelings with me for years, all the way to my adulthood. It caused me to have trust and abandonment issues. It made me a people pleaser. I wanted so bad to feel important and wanted, that I gave in to a lot.

But once I had my son and almost lost him, I viewed life differently. I prayed to God daily to heal me and show me how. I started to meditate on God’s Word, learned about chakra healing and yoga. All this taught me patience and how to let go and forgive. I forgave myself first, then I forgave others, not for them but me.

See for me to heal my past, I had to come to terms with a lot of things. I had to realize that I may never receive an apology or even an acknowledgment for anything and I had to let go. I could no longer hold myself back from seeking approval from others, I had to start believing in myself and not allowing my past to keep this hold on me.

I started by changing my mindset. Saying daily affirmations, being patient with myself when I fail. Trust me you will have setbacks but you have to push through. When it happens to me I forgive myself and promise to try to be better the next day.

My past is no longer, it is buried and gone. I live for the present because honestly, that’s all we have is the right now. Why worry about the past or the future when the present has so many opportunities for us.

It took me a very long time to get to this way of thinking and I still struggle at times, but now I have the skills to bring myself back to the present moment. It’s a long journey but it is so worth it in the long run.
