3. Let go

Understand that you do not have power over everything

Many times, people do hurtful things intentionally. Sometimes it is easy to confront, sometimes it is not. If it is not possible to confront the person and get an answer, just let it go because it was in the past and it will not affect your future.

4. Work on Gratitude

Gratitude is very powerful, experience it

Make a gratitude journal or have a section in your journal which is dedicated to gratitude. Write down every day what you are thankful for. Do this for at least five weeks. You cannot feel resentment and Dude together.

5. Focus on yourself

The past is not worth holding on to

The past is in the past. The future lies ahead of you. It is only the present that you can change. Therefore, focus on yourself, indulge in hobbies, do things that make you feel good.
