We all have moments we aren’t proud of, but mistakes are part of the human experience and learning from your mistakes can help you improve your life. Whether your past regrets consist of missing out on a relationship or job, embarrassing yourself or someone else, or any other memory that makes your heart twinge, just know you’re not alone.
Regrets may be normal, but they can bring you down and slow your forward progress. In order to continue down the path toward the person you’re meant to be, you need to quell your guilt. This will help you transcend your past regrets and move forward into your future. Here’s your four-step plan to do just that.
Release Your Guilt
1. Allow Yourself to Dwell—for a Time
Give yourself a measured amount of time to stew about your past regrets. Instead of having these thoughts and feelings crop up when you’re trying to go about your life (or fall asleep, for that matter), dedicate an hour to journal, think, or talk about what you regret and why. This allows you to give these memories their due. This is also your opportunity to vent your frustrations, your sadness, your shame, or whatever crops up when you think of the past. Once the allotted time ends, it’s time to move on.
2. Make Amends
If someone else is part of your past regret, reach out to them to make amends. Even if you haven’t spoken to that person in years, send an email or a social media message and gently get things off your chest. Your perception of a situation may end up being completely different, or the person may have entirely forgotten about whatever has been eating you up inside all this time. Or, perhaps the person has been waiting for an apology or closure so they can move on too. Whatever the case may be, making amends is always a step in the right direction if you’re looking to improve your life.
3. Identify Key Changes You Can Make
Part of letting go of past regrets means figuring out how you can avoid the same mistakes in the future. In order to do that, you need to take a long look at yourself and your actions to identify why the situation played out as it did and what you can do differently next time. When you have the desire to improve your life, you take an active role in working on yourself. This helps you become the best version of you. You may also need to figure out your anger issues or learn how to ask for help. No matter what changes you want to make, write them down and commit to doing the work. This will give you concrete steps to take that will eventually alleviate the regret you feel.
4. Forgive Yourself
Finally, you have to forgive yourself for your past regrets. Missed opportunities, acting out, and mistakes are all part of being human; however, continually beating yourself up over what happened won’t allow you to change and grow into a better person. Rather, you’ll stay stagnant in your life and your mind. Instead, know that you are worth forgiving and you deserve to live without being bogged down by regret. If needed, consult a life path psychic who can help guide you down the path toward self-love. Because, really, when you truly respect and honor yourself, you can be your best self for you and for others.
