Reflections of yourself
Have you ever looked into a body of
water and looked at a reflection of yourself?
What made us who we
are is something that is hard to explain. No, we weren't just made
up of good experiences, some experiences were bad but they also
helped make us who we are today. Learning that not all experiences
are going to be good will help make you a better person.
If we cannot forget the bad
experiences, they are going to impact us for the rest of our lives.
What people need to do is realize that a bad experience happened and
let it go. No, it may not be totally forgotten but at least saying
it happened and I am not going to let it negatively impact the rest
of my life is important. Being able to accept it happened but not
dwell on it will make you a better person. Another important thing
is learning from the negative experience and trying not to repeat
that same experience.
Looking into who you are is something
we all do from time to time and it's important to look at the good
experiences and be happy with them. The experiences that weren't so
good are lessons that we learned and things that cannot be changed but experiences that we don't want to repeat.
Knowing how to accept that a bad
experience happened and letting it go will help make that reflection
of yourself even better. You will know that you are a stronger
person for letting it go.
