I know you have heard it before!
Most likely more times than you can count!
YOU ARE NOT YOUR PAST ACTIONS!
Do you understand what this means?
Yes, you may feel that you really truly do understand and value the message in that statement!
So, we do understand that we are not defined by our past actions, correct?
Let’s analyze what truly believing that statement produces!
If you are not your past actions……
Forget about all the negative past actions right now!
I mean it, truly forget all the negative actions and events that you have been involved in!
JUST FORGET THEM!
If we are truly not defined by our past actions……
I get really excited!
Because that essentially means that we are given infinite opportunity to change who we are or how we are living our lives.
How do I arrive at that?
Well, think of it this way, theoretically, if we are not defined by what we have done in the past (near past or distant past)……
Then, every millisecond, we will say just every second here for ease of conceptualization!
Then, every second, we have the opportunity to change!
THE PAST TRULY DOES NOT MATTER!
You do not have to feel guilty or ashamed of anything that you have done in the past……
Those actions do not define you……
There were many, many variables going into why you choose to act in certain ways in the past!
You are not those actions!
Yes, this can be hard to keep true to!
Because, society habitually attempts to link people to their past actions!
It probably even started when you were very young……
With your parents……
Or in school, with the teachers……
PLEASE DON’T LET ANYONE DO THAT TO YOU!
They will try!
But, please, resist them!
We have all been made to feel bad or ashamed of something we have done in the past by some one else reminding us of the action, or trying to define or link us to our past actions.
Don’t let this get to you!
That’s the main goal!
You have to try to rise above it!
And, oh yeah, it can be hard at times!
Please, believe me, you are not your past actions!
Forget about them all right now!
You don’t have to feel bad about ANYTHING IN THE PAST!
You can almost image that your life is on some sort of film……
You can edit away……
Erase the parts you don’t like!
Amplify the memories that you do!
Can you guess the eventual outcome of this pattern of thinking?
You get to feel a lot happier!
Now, what about those actions in the past that you may have been involved in that you do feel some guilt or shame about?
Like I said, infinite opportunity, right?
Those past actions you don’t like……
This is key to feeling better……
PEOPLE DO WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO THEM!
Don’t ever involve yourself in actions that will make you feel negatively FROM THIS VERY MOMENT ON!
MAKE IT IMPORTANT TO YOU TO AVOID NEGATIVE ACTIONS AND SITUATIONS AT ANY COST!
The opportunity you just took advantage of by doing that……
You changed yourself for the better!
You can live a happier life!
Now, that really does sound like the opportunity of a lifetime, you with me?
