Why we get stuck in the past and can't move forward?
If we think consciously and try to analyse the fact, maximum people spent their most of the time while worrying about their past. It’s very natural to feel painful or being sad for some time though anything goes slightly wrong. It’s human tendency to react to the specific situations and dilemmas in life. The sentimental and emotional characteristic differs from person to person. But how correct is it to spend our maximum time just murmuring about the past?
After a breakup whether it’s committed relationship or just a friendship there is a natural period of grief, sadness and mourning. It is a time when you feel stuck, when it seems to be impossible to live a life, and doing even the simplest thing feel like climbing Mt. Everest. The process can be different for each individual, but in my opinion, this period of mourning is fair game and well. It’s a human tendency; you do what you need to do in order to get through the pain and survive through the grief.
At some point in life almost everyone face this phase at some extent. For anyone who has felt stuck before, you know exactly the feeling I’m talking about. It’s like you’re trapped under this huge weight of emotions and every step you take, that weight becomes heavier and heavier. Your mind gets clouded. Your heart grows confused with mixed fears, some uncertain anxieties and insecurity. In the entire storm finding your way seems close to impossible. Time ticks away and nothing seems to change. You may wonder why you feel this way and can’t seem to move forward and leave the past behind.
The past is already gone. Right now you don’t have any control over it. You can’t rewind a time or events that happened. You can’t go back and correct anything. So it’s better to let it go. Accept the truth. I know it needs more courage but yes it’s a bitter reality.
