Past experiences-what we did, didn’t do, should have done, did poorly or wrongly-are always with us in some way. We need to get clear of the anchor of the past, doing what we can and letting go of the rest. You are not your past, yet you may still be living as if you are.
When clearing unresolved matters with the past, a person will exhibit some of the following traits -
They will feel free of what he or she has done, yet take full responsibility for it all.
- They can be with themselves, as they are today, with no compensating.
- They are able to set goals and reach them easily without any of the baggage that wants to burden them and drag them back into the past.
When one isn’t clear, you invariably see the following –
They continue to repeat the past in some new way. Interestingly, they will get better at the cycle and they will start to repeat the pattern with increasing efficiency and in shorter time frames.
- They will react to life’s unresolved matters and constantly fall into a “victim” mindset.
I had an acquaintance that developed a very aggressive brain tumor and was dead 3 weeks from diagnosis. Two days before he died I got to talk to him about life and how he felt about facing a terminal illness at 31 years old. He said that he had made peace with it, no one was guaranteed a tomorrow and he had no regrets. He had made peace with his past and was living fully in the present and at that moment he was the most peaceful person I have ever had the privilege of knowing.
May your day be filled with “No Regrets”
