Trouble not yourself!

Past is past for a reason
Trouble not yourself in every season
If it keeps coming to your head
Just remember, the dead stay dead

It’s been then but now it is gone
And you know, it can’t be withdrawn
Don’t let it steal your happy moment
You might fall prey to your opponent

You cannot change the past
Even if you regret too fast
So learn to let go
And live for the present show!

    1. That’s right dear!! ❀️❀️❀️ Living in the present not regretting the past is the key to happiness. Thank you for this insightful comment. πŸ€—


  1. Sometimes I lie awake thinking about all of the cool comebacks I could have said in conversations… from when I was eight-years-old! I think that we all regret the past and that they’re parts of it that we wish we could change but can’t. This is good advice – keep looking forwards. Those conversations are over and will never happen again. Time to make new ones πŸ’•

    1. True dear. πŸ™Œ Couldn’t agree more! Past is gone and dead, there’s nothing we could do about it. It’s great to forget and forgive and move on…. Life has so much in store for us and to live the present is the only way to be happy. Thank you for your beautiful comment. Means so much to me ❀️ πŸ€—
