RYS 058: How to Stop Giving Painful Memories Power Over Your Present

In this Episode:


Most likely you will always remember the hurtful and traumatic life-events you experience, just like you remember the positive, wonderful ones. So I encourage you not to worry about forgetting. Forgive yes, but forget no. I assure you just because you don’t forget the painful memories does not mean they must continue to have power over you.

• By giving time and attention to bad memories you permit people who hurt you in the past to continue having power over you in the present.
• The bad stuff that happened in the past can only hurt you now if you choose to keep reliving it.
• Over time, with purposeful attention, you can retrain yourself to allow a negative memory to come in and go out without emotionally attaching any significance to it.
