It’s Not Worth Beating Yourself Up Over the Past
This was a massive one for me, and I know it’s a massive one for my clients as well.
I always used to blame the past for where I was at.
Of course, what I did in the past, e.g. overeating, eating crap and not exercising regularly, and just not taking care of myself lead me to being overweight.
I was angry with myself for not taking better care of myself.
At one point, I was off work for 3 months, as I was in between jobs. It could have been the ideal time to take myself in hand and go to the gym every day, and eat better, etc.
However, the uncertainty of not knowing when I would have another job took the best of me, and I comfort ate, and didn’t really feel like going to the gym.
I remember that when I started the new job, I was angry and disappointed with myself for not using that time.
Still today, what I have done in the past, leads me to what I am today.
I know very well, that I am not where I want to be today, partially because I had a car accident some years ago, and it took ages to get the injuries sorted.
However, beating myself over it, won’t help.
It is what it is. It’s a reality.
I was then what I was, and I am now what I am.
All I can do, is make sure that the future is different, by acting differently every day as of today.
I can’t go back to the past and change it. So let’s move on and focus on today and the days to come.
