Many people find it difficult to let go of a past relationship, but what they don’t realize is that holding onto someone who isn’t good for them is only hurting them.
I absolutely love this quote by Paulo Coelho that says: “When someone leaves, it’s because someone else is about to arrive.”
You see, when we think about the people we’re no longer with but are still attached to, it’s not just about the person themselves. It’s also about the memories we have shared. These memories can be happy and positive, or they can be negative and painful.
You know, memories are a funny thing. They can make you laugh, or they can make you cry. They can take you back to a time when things were simpler, or they can remind you of a time when things were complicated. But one thing that memories always do is give us a false sense of attachment. They make us believe that without this or that person, a better life can’t be possible, and happiness is a thing of the past, but that’s not true! It’s an illusion, a trick your ego creates. And that’s what ego does best.
It’s been said that to move on from a person, we need to create new, positive memories. We need to replace the old, hurtful ones with good ones. This can be difficult, but it’s possible. You can start by doing things that make you happy. Spend time with loved ones, go on trips, and try new experiences. Whatever brings you joy, do more of it, because you deserve to be happy.
Now, this doesn’t mean that you should forget about the past entirely. After all, our memories are a part of who we are. But dwelling on hurtful memories will only keep you stuck in the past. It’s important to remember that happiness is a choice.
We can choose to focus on the positive aspects of our lives, or we can dwell on the negative. If we dwell on hurtful memories, they will only keep us stuck in a downward spiral. So instead, let go of those memories and focus on creating new, positive ones.
Life is full of ups and downs, but it’s how we react to the lows that define us. When bad things happen, we can either let them control us or we can choose to move on. It might not be easy, but it’s always worth it to choose happiness.
Don’t let the past hold you back, and don’t dwell on hurtful memories – let them go and move on with your life. Happiness awaits!
