How to accept that what is done, is done

Counseling is Key to a Healthy Marriage

Many people consume much of their emotional energy being upset and angry about past events.

Unfortunately, this energy is completely wasted, because nothing good can come out of lamentations about the past.

Worse, the negative emotions maintained by reliving past events rob you of the joy and delight you could experience thinking of future possibilities.

When the quality of understanding is not strong and we have not yet learned to see the good side of what is happening around us, we feel wronged, frustrated, unhappy.

We always have regrets like “why did this happen to me”, “why didn’t I do it like that”, it would have been better, I could have etc. 

  • An important first step in accepting the past is to realize that what has already happened can no longer be changed. But you can understand what happened. By understanding, you will be able to realize to what extent those experiences were useful to you to become a better, more compassionate, more resilient, stronger or wiser person.
  • The strongest and most liberating decision you can make is to forgive everyone who has hurt you in any way. Only by forgiving others will you be able to free yourself. Imagine how you would feel if you were not angry with anyone. That you are a completely positive, optimistic, jovial person, with a high level of personal respect, enthusiasm and unlimited confidence in yourself. All this is possible for you if you choose to forgive.
  • You can speed up the process of personal liberation if you take responsibility for your contribution to what happened. It may be hard at first to forgive. Many people have built their entire adult lives around their troubles. They are afraid that they will have nothing to talk about if they stop complaining about their parents or their marriages. 

But when you forgive others and leave them alone, you immediately experience a state of relief and become happier.

As the thoughts of anger and resentment disappear, your mind will be filled with positive thoughts.

You will have more energy and more enthusiasm.

You will feel stronger and more confident and the whole future will open in front of you.

  1. “For the gaming fishermen there was the Whatoosie River and its native cocka-snoek, the main game fish of the resident Skeggs Valley Dynamite Fishing Club. Cocka-snoek were wily and tough and rather too bright for mere fish. You wouldn’t catch much with a rod around here. Many inexperienced visitors would find the bait stolen from their hooks, which punctuated the discovery that their lines had somehow got snagged and tangled irretrievably around some underwater obstruction – sometimes tied together with neat little bows. Often, several direct hits with hand grenades were needed to stun the creatures long enough just to catch them, gut them and fry them, but these former military types had become experts at it. For a modest fee, tours could be arranged via the booking office, which included an overnight stay on the banks of the river where one could drop off to a great night’s sleep after a satisfying meal of cocka-snoek done on an open fire, and the sound the bits of shrapnel made rattling in your stomach.” ― Christina Engela

forget thoughts of revenge.” ― V.C. Andrews
