Everyone comes to that point in life where they stop and look back at who they used to be and think “wow I’ve changed so much”. It’s a part of life and honestly it’s healthy (if done right). But how do we make sure that our self-reflection is coming from a happy place?
For me it was about looking back at how far I’ve come as an individual, not regretting the things in my past but accepting that, yes they happened and no I don’t wish I could change them. I personally don’t believe in regret. Not in the sense of regretting your past choices, because if you didn’t make those choices or had those experiences you wouldn’t be where you are today.
But then again… what if you look at who you are now and decide you don’t like it? Self-reflection is an important tool to make sure that where you’re heading is where you want to be. Take time out of your day to sit down and write a list of things you’re proud of and things you want to change, goals for the future and how are you going to get there. Come from a positive place when you do this, negative thoughts breed a negative attitude which in turn can make you more likely to do the opposite of what you need.
Lifes a lot to handle. But it’s all about balance and learning from ourselves and others, that way it’s easier to handle.
