We create negative feelings once we make a mistake no matter how big or small. In this cycle we hurt ourselves but also hurt others.
Your past mistakes never stop running your mind. Even though there are times you are happy, at the end of the day, your brain will remind you of your mistakes until you start over thinking all the negative thoughts and situations that never really happened.
You become so depressed and stressed, you try to shut down your brain in a way of trying to get some sleep but anxieties and fears won’t let you stop thinking.
How can you cope up from the painful mistakes?
Four years ago, there was a 17 year-old male who was physically and verbally abused by the members of his family. When he was able to move, he could never stop thinking all the painful experiences. He realized that it was easy to escape from his situation but he could never escape the memories in his head.
So, he tried to escape through drinking and drugs. It was his perfect escape just to forget everything for awhile.
He had suicidal thoughts but in the midst of his thoughts, there was hope.
One day, he woke up. He asked for a better life. He prayed. But it was hard from him to stop his vices. He still continued for few months but he caught himself hoping for a better life, thinking of happiness.
