The prison of previous mistakes comes with jailers of guilt and regret. Together they hold you captive, torturing you with images of what you could have been and what you could have accomplished had you not done this or that or the other.
If you allow it, there are three ways that the past can haunt you. You can be tormented by memories of what happened to you, what you did, and/or what you didn’t do. No matter how many times you think about yesterday, it isn’t going to change. You can’t rewrite it. Every single person since Adam and Eve, have noted at least one event they regret and at least one choice they wish could be reversed.
Dwelling in yesterday is delusional because you’re not dealing with the reality of today. Each morning you’re given a new beginning and a wiser mind-set because of the knowledge you gained from yesterday.
How will you live today so it won’t be a regret tomorrow? -Dr. Sandy
