Everyone has some skeletons in their closets of some nature. But when it continues to dominate your thoughts, it will continue to punish you in many ways.
Lucinda Bassett, in her excellent book, “From Panic to Power” suggests that we are programmed to use guilt as justification for suffering and unhappiness. When you feel guilty, you might look at every problem that presents itself as the proper punishment rather than an appropriate challenge that you can take on and rise above it.
Some people view their mistakes as “it’s going to happen” and just assume this and seem to accumulate them and wear them as their Scarlet Letter.
A quiet down ridden person might feel guilty when they actually feel good as they don’t feel that they deserve it.
Forgiving yourself for past deeds is extremely powerful and can lead to an amazing feeling of peace of mind. When you have made peace with your past, it allows many feelings and emotions to be released and the peace that it accompanies is very relieving.
Until you have made peace with your past, you cannot out perform the self constraints you have placed on yourself.
When you have liberated yourself from your past mistakes, your true personality, talents and abilities will show through. You will amaze yourself as to what you can accomplish by not having to push through the guilt.
When you make peace with yourself, you will be amazed as to how much you can accomplish in such a relatively short period of time.
We all have these restraints that we have lived with – now is the time to liberate yourself from the burdens of the past and become that person you truly want to be.
Believe in Yourself – The Shortest Route to Success!!!
If you got anything out of this post, please let me know where you stand. These are the types of messages that we can either take seriously or push them off, but it is up to you to become that person you truly want to be. Life is too damn short to not take advantage of what you can do and where you can go – but it is truly up to you!
