Make Peace with Your Past: Why You Need to Grieve Your Past Self
Do you have regrets in your life? Do you reflect upon your past and wish you could change it? In this episode of Glow Up Season, I talk about what it means to grieve your past self, why it’s so important for your health and wellbeing, and what happens when you ignore or suppress grief. Then, I share a few tips on how to grieve your past self so that you can move on and glow up!
“Grieving is simply the emotional response to a loss.”
It’s okay to want better for your past self… but at what point does it start to hold you back from being present and content with where you’re at now?
Grief can show up in many ways and be triggered by many different events, like a break-up, a haircut, a change in career paths, or even the pandemic. Grieving your past self means you’re allowing yourself to feel the emotions you didn’t allow yourself to feel when you were becoming a different version of yourself.
“We will always go through pain in our lives, sis, we cannot control that… but what we can control is how we choose to respond to that pain.”
Grief sets you free. Grief allows you to move forward in your life while feeling lighter, less resistant, and less guilty of the past. You owe it to yourself to stop being a prisoner of your past. Your past is a lesson, not a life sentence.
