Dwelling in the past undermines our happiness. Every day I hear from people who are resentful about something that happened to them or about a person who they feel did something to them.
But what if we didn’t let the past consume us? If we do the work necessary to let go, we release our burden and are rewarded with new space to enjoy the present moments more.
It all starts with taking responsibility for our part in the situation, without any blame. Then we can draw our lesson, decide what good can come out of the experience, and commit to something new going forward.
And thereby create new space for more happiness.
