Sometimes it’s ok to look back and see how far you’ve come. Be proud of your accomplishments and let them overshadow your failures. You’ve worked hard, done much, made changes and improved your spirit far beyond what you’re allowing yourself to see.
Looking back isn’t a bad thing if you use it as a gauge for where you are today. You have worked hard and put a lot of energy into recreating you and your life. Take a moment to see what you’ve accomplished and how far you come.
Don’t dwell on the mistakes or the things that didn’t go right. Instead learn from those things and allow them to teach you for the future. Dwelling on the past puts thorns under your feet and blocks the way forward. Or worse sets an anchor that holds you back from your path.
You deserve to be proud of where you are and how far you’ve come. You deserve to feel good about where you are today compared to the past. And you deserve the happiness and the success you’ve been striving for.
So don’t let the nay-sayers or the unhappy people from the past try to keep you where they are. It’s not your place to grovel with them so they feel better about where they are. They’re afraid of letting you go, because it means they have to look in the mirror and see how far they are from making changes in their own life.
Allow yourself to be happy and stop judging your path by someone else’s standards. You know how much work you’ve done. You know how much you’ve changed. You know how hard it has been and the amount of energy it took to do it. Live by your own standards and be proud of where you are and how much you’ve accomplished.
