Why we Regret?

The shortest answer to this question would be – We regret because we can’t forgive ourselves. We can’t forgive ourselves for behaving a certain way, making certain decisions, hurting someone, not taking action, not spending enough time doing something we love or being with someone we love. Simply put, regret is basically self-blame. Looking back at what was and concluding that we could have done something differently,…

I Blame Myself

You cannot force yourself to feel. Feelings are already present in you, some of us can feel their emotions more than others. If you think that you can’t feel emotions, it’s not true, you are simply unable to become aware to what you feel because you are heavily invested in other things that take away your attention from your emotions.

Forgiveness

Holding a grudge, when we feel insulted, mistreated, wronged in one way or another should only remind us that we put other people’s opinions, words, actions before our own.

Forgiving yourself

Forgiving yourself for making mistakes, for not being perfect, for not living up to your own standards, other people standards. Self-judgment, self-blame, for failing to follow your self-created rules and beliefs. How do we forgive ourselves? Is it possible? Is it possible to stop agonizing about the things that didn’t come out the way we expected them to? For living lives in suffering, choosing to believe in things that made us feel…

A thought doesn’t distract you, only you distract yourself with thought

Imagine that your thoughts are floating in colorful soap bubbles. Each though in a floating bubble. A bubble is free to move in any direction, you’re free to make it move in any direction. A thought is not an object, it has no weight. It is free to float like air. You are free to notice it. To follow it. To direct it in any way. There is no need to pop the bubble of thought. It is beautiful. It is free. It is free to collide with another thought bubble.…
