Holding on to old pain

“2. Holding on to old pain is self-abuse. 

Your past has given you the strength and wisdom you have today, so celebrate it. Don’t let it haunt you. Replaying a painful memory over and over in your head is a form of self-abuse. Toxic thoughts create a toxic life. Make peace with yourself and your past.”

Excerpted from an email blast I subscribe to over at marcandangel.com.

I don’t want to be an abuser!  I hate abusers — and don’t consider myself one — an abuser of other people, that is (at least consciously).

But myself?  Maybe…

Definitely…if you look at it this way.

So I’m really glad I read that!

Have a good Tuesday!
