Many people are walking around attempting to live their lives through their past wounds.
They are so wrapped up in how many people betrayed them, how many failures they’ve had and how much pain they have that they fail to see the Sun shining, they fail to see and receive the love before them, they fail to see the many blessings in their lives.
They actually look at blessings as a curse waiting to happen. They look at love as betrayal just waiting to consume them.
My heartbreaks for those people.
However, we are all ultimately responsible for our present life, we all are accountable for the choices we make in the now.
If you are miserable and unhappy due to dwelling on past wounds...do your self and your loved ones a favor.
Get the help you need. Be committed to owning your present and be accountable for your choices in the now.
Therapy can help you heal but only if you are willing to do the work. The work might be hard...knowing yourself, acknowledging your triggers and owning your self.
If we continue to think about all the times we have been hurt, betrayed and scarred in the past we then fail to see the beauty of life that is right before us.
Living through past wounds is not living, it’s not thriving.
You deserve the best. You deserve love. You deserve to thrive. You can either be your greatest enemy or your greatest champion.
May we all see the beauty, love and joy that life can have for us when we choose to live in present gratitude rather than through past wounds.
