6 Reasons We Should Forget Past Mistakes and Look Forward
Mistakes are a part of life. We all make them at some point or the other, some big ones that change our life’s course and direction, and some small ones that can somehow be managed but leave us with certain lessons to remember. However, the biggest mistake that one can probably make is to stop his or life by just sitting down and thinking about the past mistakes.
Life is all about keeping the show going on. You will have occasional falls and weak moments, but that’s never a reason enough for you to stop living your life. One needs to accept the fact that mistakes are a part of everyone’s life, and that we all make them. It’s all about forgetting the past mistakes and moving forward. Here’s why.
1. It has nothing new to offer
It has happened. You were there when it happened, and you experienced it first hand. Thinking about it over and over again is just going to keep it fresh in your head and do nothing else. There are no new details that will come up, and no new kinds of feelings to experience except for misery and sadness in loop. So might as well free yourself from such torture and move on.
2. You can’t change it now
If you couldn’t do anything back then to repair the damage, then there is no way you can do something now to change that situation. What’s done is done and there is no way you can change anything right now. No modifications or repairs can happen. Then why waste your time on something unproductive and unchangeable?
3. Its negativity will hamper your present and future
The bad vibe coming from the memories of those past mistakes will affect your mood and current state of mind. It will lower your efficiency and affect your interest in everything related to the present and the future. In other words, you are letting a minor part of your life affect the major part that’s left of it. Why would you do that?
