Just because something bad has happened to you once does not mean it will continue to impact your life, unless of course you don’t let it go and put it in your past. Bad things happen to good people. If you allow that to become what defines you it will continue to eat at your core and become you and then you become the victim. You have to Acknowledge, Accept and Achieve.
First step to facing your past is to Acknowledge it. Acknowledge what has happened to negatively impact your future. Stop hiding it and most of all stop hiding from it. If you made bad choices acknowledge them. If you were abused acknowledge that they were the ones that were bad, not you. If you made decisions you regret, acknowledge the mistake. You are only the victim as long as you allow yourself to be so.
Next you need to Accept the reality that you cannot change the past. Accept that your past is History and History cannot be changed but by accepting it you can learn from it and move forward. If you keep reliving the past over and over all you do is continue to stuck and you are not able to move forward to the life you are meant to live. Accepting your Past will allow you to release the guilt of it and in return allow you to no longer be the victim.
The final and my favorite step is to Achieve Positivity. Once you are able to Acknowledge and Accept your Past you can release all the negativity that stays trapped inside you and you are able to Achieve a life of Positive Energy. As I always remember, “Positive Energy Brings Positive Results”. In you future you are destined to be the Hero of your life not the Victim.
Take charge of your life today and never allow your past and those that may have hurt you to make you a victim forever. You need to rise above; Acknowledge, Accept, and most importantly Achieve!! You deserve happiness and only you can require that in your life.
