How to Make Peace with the Past and Live in the Present


Chandra AlexanderAre unresolved childhood issues still running your life? If you’re stuck in the past and don’t know how to move on, it is important to learn how to make peace with the past and live in the present.1. Most people look like adults but are really children.-Having a good life and healthy relationships are about “growing up”.-I learned a long time ago that no one had a great childhood. They were all difficult and at some point we all have to move on.2. Being a victim makes you powerless.-Taking back your power means you are not waiting or wanting your parents’ approval. You need to become your own parent, your own source of approval.-Every single person who walks on this earth has been hurt by someone or something. That is what being human is about. It is learning how to open to life – to the joys and the sorrows. You can’t have one without having the other.3. Our issues are always our issues.-My favorite all time quote is by T.S. Eliot. He says, “It is ending up where you began but knowing the place for the first time.”-We keep circling around. If you have abandonment issues from your childhood, those stay your issues forever and you get the chance to keep working on them.-They may never go away but they stop running your life. You may always be aware that they are there, but when you grow up, you are in charge of your life as an adult, not as a child that feels victimized.4. Feeling is only way to heal.-You cannot “think” your way through your issues. You need to own them and the only way you can do that is by feeling.
