Then look for a new door, then another window.
There’s always lots of doors and windows.
Keep your eyes open for ’em.
I have a single word mantra I recommend.
Repeat the word: “FORWARD.”
Whenever you’re tempted to dwell in the past, repeat this single word: FORWARD.
Also, it helps if you’re a “forward thinker” and brainstorm up one positive thought and/or one positive action to use to keep you moving forward.
When you’re tempted to indulge in a negative thought and/or regressive behavior, consciously stop it and swap it for this positive thought or positive action that will move you forward!
