The past is a moment, full of lessons, experiences, beliefs that we have adopted and learned along the way and that have shaped us into who we are today.
But the way we look at and talk about our past has a very big role in creating the present moment as well. For example, what do you think a person creates for himself on a daily basis when he talks about what happened in the past in a negative way with victim mindset, that this and that happened to him and that he is like this because of these events, etc.? Versus the person who talks about the past experiences & lessons he learned from it with enthusiasm, inspiration, excitement and gratitude.
Everyone has moments in the past filled with both positive and challenging experiences. How we view our past shapes our view of the present and the so-called future (which is also the present moment). Seeing the past as an experience where every small fragment has been an opportunity for growth and development, this attitude helps us more easily cope with more difficult situations in everyday life – seeing them as places for growth and potential for expansion.
When we are aware of how we interpret our past, we have the opportunity to use the past as a creative force. Understanding the past as a source of infinite potential empowers us to consciously create a new future that reflects our inner values, beliefs and desires.
If you want to create change in the future, but you look at your past experience as a victim, you become a prisoner of your own reality.
We can’t change the past, but we can change how we feel about it.
