Do not worry about the past. It is gone. As Mahatma Gandhi once said, “There is nothing that waste the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.” The past is important. Do not worry about it. All you have to do is to learn from your past experiences. Use your past experiences to shape your future. Because life is in the future, not in the past.

If you want to enjoy the moment, you must do everything within your power to put your past behind you. Nikolai Berdyaev was right when he said, “What one needs to do at every moment of one’s life is to put an end to the old world and to begin a new world.” You have only one life to live. Don’t use it to worry about your past. Don’t live in the past. If you do, you will miss your present.

Why You Can’t Change The Past

“The time is now, the place is here. Stay in the present. You can do nothing to change the past, and the future will never come exactly as you plan or hope for.”– Dan Millman

The time to forget your past failures is now. The place to do it is right here, right where you are. Allow yourself to forget the past. The past is gone. There is nothing you can do about it. You can’t bring it back. No, you can’t.

Whatever may have happened to you in the past, let it go. Do not walk around with your past disappointments. It hurts!

The only thing you can do something about is NOW. The only place to start it is right here, right now. You can do something to change your present, but you can’t do anything to change your past. If that is the case, then why are you worrying yourself about what you cannot change?

To enjoy your life, you must do what you can to change your present. You must not worry yourself about your past failures. When you are always worrying yourself about your past, you become too focused on your failures. Stop doing that to yourself. You can’t change your past, but you can change yourself. That is what you should do. The choice is yours.
