Maybe it would be better just to remember that there were many things about your past you choose to forget, and acknowledge if you could do it again it would have been done differently. You would have made different choices if you could relive those moments that no longer exist, and did not serve you well.
But as the saying goes "There is no sense in worrying about things you can not control", and our past happens to be on the top of that list. Here's another: "Worry Does Not Change Tomorrow's Troubles, But Destroys Today's Peace".
Isn't this better than a continual state of regurgitating one's past memories, which the base of past thoughts/memories are extremely faulty and tend to mentally alter and distort as time passes. However, the only real thing that remain perfectly clear is that all our wrongful thoughts which turned into actual deeds/actions as well as our good ones.
Is this not the biggest indicator of how powerful our ability is to Manifest, and clarify how important it is to control your Mind by the way of controlling your "Thoughts". Let us never loss sight that Thoughts are Things. By not losing sight of this fact, you can and you will create a new life, avoiding most if not all of the pit-fails you have experienced in your prior; your no longer existing past experiences.
In the same token you are creating a total life of reliving by regurgitating your past, it becomes one's focus. Can you really move on that way? After all our man-made system of law does a pretty good job of holding others choices/mistakes/errors against one for life to ensure they never forget, and in hopes one never really moves forward. Do we need to follow or lead by example?
I have a motto relative to this subject: "Do You Want To Be Right, Or Do You Want To Be Happy". Unfortunately, these two things DO NOT go hand in glove, usually totally non-related other than being polar opposites.
So I think it is by far better to realize that nothing of the past has any baring on who you are becoming. "For We All Remain In A Eternal State Of Becoming and a State of Grace".
Grace has never been earned by any of us it has always been a Given, and Becoming Is Non Stoppable! What You Become Is The Only Thing That Is Under Your Control....and is being Created in your every NOW moment.

PLEASE TYPE "INVITE" IN A COMMENT TO BE ADDED TO MY "ALWAYS THERE" GROUP!
Only for serious minded people who want to make serious changes, and overcome major obstacles in one's life.
Hey Out There YOU Baby Boomers!
Baby Boomers' Important Characteristics:
Strong work ethic. Baby boomers aren't afraid to put in a hard day of work. ... Self-Assured. This generation is independent and self-assured. ... Competitive. Baby boomers like competition. ... Goal-centric. ... Resourceful. ... Mentally focused. ... Team oriented. ... Disciplined.
Please follow me on "Always There": This group discussion is on invite only at present, but I only called myself trying that option so I can see how it works.....But what I really want to talk about is: Time for Us Baby Boomers to Show Them What We Are Made Us......pure Greatness!!! Quit playing, did we let others come to decisions about us they we didn't give them permission to do so; REALLY? NO NOT THE BABY BOOMERS!
We have been known to fight for far less in comparison!! This is not to say this is the worse it could be but is to say if you truly feel you are capable of a whole lot more....then this would be the group to join!. We have already proven that we have the tenacity to jump over hurdles, and walk on fire....and so much more including our ability to persist indefinitely if necessary!. In so many cases "No" was not an acceptable answer, and we are not just talking about the burning bra group, there are those of us that decided to remotely join but keep our bra's on!! We protest anything that we came to the conclusion was unjust or unequally balanced, and many were imprisoned for standing their ground, and many killed.
The way I see it there is nothing when we unite we can not achieve? Who knows we just might have a hand in changing something, and something that makes a big difference for many of this generation and even many more for the next generation(s).
Please, I don't want anyone to feel that they are not welcomed, age, gender, race, ethnic descriptions, organizations/religions, practices, company affiliation or any other group affiliation have not been attached as any kind of requirement. Again, NONE for or against anything or anyone or just a matter of opinion; which are NOT a requirement(s), And all Are Accepted. THAT MEANS "It Just Doesn't Matter".
I so appreciate, and stand in gratitude for all of the Jobcase Members, and all of those that has chosen to follow or read my conversations, and most definitely for all the wonderful responses. Please request an Invite if you which to join, all welcomed!
I want to constantly stay in a state of giving in one way or another for I do believe that "To Give Is Exactly The Same As Receiving".
So I am so dedicated to bringing people together, and will continue to do just that....
Doing everything within my efforts, within my mind, body and Foremost my Spirit to bring together a sharing place for the very mature of mind so we can be our own voice, and totally accept the undertaking of setting our own destiny; and do note AGE has nothing to do with it.
It is 5:25 AM Est on 4/19/19 it was just one of those nights whereas I was entirely woke at 2:30 AM. I feel safe in saying I know I am not the only one that have those occasional kind of nights/days!
So, everyone do have a Great Day, Weekend, if not full of Enlightenment.
PLEASE NOTE ALL FOLLOWERS ARE AUTOMATICALLY WELCOMED! Just mention it on invite.....Please....let's see how this Jobcase tool works....may I add Unity is the key!!! The difference between one that "Chooses" to see the Glass as "Half Full" opposed to those who choose to see it as "Half Empty". "Choosing" being the keyword.
Much Love To All, We Are All Eternally In A State of Beginning......

My grandma always said Don't worry no sense in crying over spilt milk.
Patricia, What an enlightening post. It is true you can let your past control your future only if you let it.
Great advice! There's an excellent book I read several years ago called "Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda: Overcoming Regrets, Mistakes, and Missed Opportunities" by Arthur Freeman and Rose DeWolf. It really helped me get past regrets and sadness over leaving a job that no longer sustained us financially and moving to another state. I highly recommend it for people who are stuck in the past.
Amen. Amen, and Amen!!!!! Keep moving FORWARD!!!!
