We don’t have to hold onto the things that are continually causing us heartache and pain. If it is hurting us, choose to get rid of it. That is when we will truly learn to experience natural happiness.
Focusing too much on the past doesn’t allow time for us to reminisce on the great memories we are making in the present moment.
No one has the right to dictate how I am going to feel, or what I will choose to do throughout my day. That is not up to anyone but myself. By allowing others to decide my mood for me, I am essentially giving up my freedom for how exist how I wish to feel. Don’t allow anyone to have that level of power over you!
