Life rarely goes the way we expect it to. In fact, it’s fair to say that for the most part the life that you are living could be upended at any given moment, to the point where you might just lose something or someone you really cared about. There are also situations where you might make a few mistakes or bad decisions here or there, and these decisions could haunt you and leave you feeling like you can’t live the life you feel like you deserved no matter how untrue such a thought tends to be.
What you should focus on after having made a huge mistake, suffering from a loss or just experiencing trauma in general is getting your life back on track. As far as getting past a mistake is concerned, as long as you know what you have done and are dedicated to improving then you are definitely a good person and you deserve to rebuild your life. There are a few simple steps that you can follow to get your life back on track regardless of the reason behind why you should do it.
First and foremost you should try your best to adopt some kind of a routine. If you fill your day with productive activities then there is no reason why you would dwell on the past. Sometimes it can be difficult to do this though so don’t be too hard on yourself as this really won’t end up doing anyone any good, and in fact it might hurt your chances of getting it together.
Be firm with yourself but also be kind. You deserve a life where you are happy and fulfilled, and anyone that says otherwise does not deserve you.
