- Realize that your bitterness, hatred, or resentment doesn’t affect the other person at all. In fact, they may not know how you feel, and if they do, they may not care.
- Realize the best way to “win” and move on is to live the happiest and best life possible. There’s nothing to match something with your life, feeling satisfied, and enjoying who you are.
- Look for the silver lining in the cloud, and learn what you can from the bad experience. Often, it can make you a much better person – who is kinder, wiser, and better character.
- Remember the people who were there for you, and who helped you to feel much better about things. Focus on their qualities – and not the other person’s.
- Be compassionate and understanding with yourself. Emotional wounding always takes its toll on you. It leaves you feeling beaten, and torn up inside.
- Decide not to think about the story again. You’re hurting yourself more by going over it. CHoose to think about the people who bring joy to your life, and the life experiences that leave you feeling proud.
- Remember that the meaning of “forgiveness” is “unite”… And you want to be free from all that person and the pain. So, decide to untie yourself, and move on with your life.
