Getting Over The Past

The past is gone.

But by brooding over whatever tragedies happened, you just make yourself insane - a sickness that can destroy resolving it to live for the present, the now. Some Muslims with a firm purpose file away and forget past occurences, which won't see light, or be brought up in arguments, or exposed for re-trial. Episodes of the past are finished with; sadness can't retrieve or heal them, and depression will never bring the past back to life, a life that makes sense.

Do not live in the nightmare of mulling over what you missed. It is not worth it. Save yourself the ghostly anxiety of 'what ifs'. By constantly dwelling on what happened with regret you place yourself in a tragic state of mind. So reading too much into the past - without learning the lessons - wastes your current time.

When Allah mentioned the affairs of the previous nations He said,
'That was a nation who passed away...' (Qur'an, 2:134).

You gain nothing but misery by carrying out an autopsy over your yesterdays. Some of us still live in the past, we're like someone trying to saw sawdust. Our tragedy is that we are incapable of dealing with the present.

Everything on earth turns forward preparing for a new season - so should you.
