Letting go of past hurt

The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realise that the situation is over, you cannot move forward in your life.

I recently ran a powerful meditation to support letting go of past hurts of others.

How to let go is a question many of us ask ourselves each time we experience heartache or emotional pain: how do you let go of past hurts and move on?

Holding on to the past can be a conscious decision just like letting go and moving forward can be a conscious decision.

One thing that connects us as human beings is our ability to feel pain. Whether that pain is physical or emotional, we all have experiences of being hurt.

What separates us though, is how we deal with pain.

When emotional pain prevents you from healing from a situation, it’s a sign that we aren’t moving forward in a growth-oriented way.

One of the best ways to heal from hurts is to learn lessons from the situation and use those to focus on growth and forward momentum.

If we get stuck in thinking about what “should have been,” we can become immobilised in painful feelings and memories.

If you’re trying to move forward from a painful experience, but you’re not sure how to get started, this meditation will help you cut the painful or toxic bond you have with the situation.

I believe very strongly that we learn the most from our darkest moments.

One of my favourite quotes is:

“Forget what hurt you but never forget what it taught you. “

Shannon L. Alder

Learning from past hurt is one thing, but to heal and let go is another thing entirely.
