“The past only has an impact on the present when you continue to waste your powerful thought and feeling energies on something that no longer exists at all, other than in your own mind. Whatever it was that happened is finished now, and no matter how uncomfortable it was for you, you need to come to the understanding that at some level you chose it, and that it helped to build your character and make you a stronger individual.
Whenever you do find yourself wondering why something turned out the way it did, I suggest calling to mind the old adage that often times “God does work in mysterious ways.” The truth is, you really don’t know the “big picture.” So, even though you might be inclined to feel sad about a certain event in your past, make the decision to accept the realization that there is a higher order to things, and that something good will eventually come of it.”
