“The most obvious thing about which you can do nothing now is your past behavior. Everything that you ever did is simply over, and while you can almost always learn from it, and sometimes change effects that are continuing into the present, you cannot undo what you have done. Therefore, any time you find yourself quarreling about how you should or shouldn’t have done something, instead of discussing how you can grow from your past errors or what can be done NOW, you are a victim in a no-escape pitfall.
To chew old cud endlessly, to be reminded of how you did this or that, and how you should have done it, or to agonize over how you might have done it, are all victim responses you can challenge. Since you can only live in the present moment, it is preposterous and self-negating to let yourself be hurt about what used to be.”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in “Pulling Your Own Strings”
