How do I learn to let go of the past

I had originally a great life I was very happy and enjoyed life but then something happened and it all the sudden went from great to cool to ok to bad to barely acceptable. I am holding on to everything from my past and can't draw the line anywhere. the memories of the past are so good they feel like torture now because of how bad life is now and how great it was back then. how do I learn to let it go?

Time is a healer and closing the chapters of the past and making every opportunity to meet new people, making new friends and starting new adventures is the key. Don't be afraid to let go of the past.

Keep busy, try to fill your time with what makes you happen. Also, if you don't exactly know why you feel miserable now trying to get to the root of the problem will probably help as well. I know how you feel as I'm going through it as well. Good luck.

maybe try focusing on what your purpose here on Earth is. I believe that we were born for a reason and it is our job to discover that ; not that we were put here for our own pleasure. Of course we do experience pleasure along the way. That's just my take on it. Also try to focus on the good that is in your life now.

Pray to God. He loves you no matter what goes on in life. Pass up your worries to him. He will be there for you through thick and thin! Trust him! He cares for you! Look up the story "Footprints in the Sand." Its an amazing story that will hopefully help you. :)

You need to set goals to work your way back. Do it in small steps, so you are not setting yourself up to fail. It will never be the same, but once you start working back you may find something else that you actually enjoy more. Just remember to learn the lessons you have been given.

If you want to move on, you need stop looking back at what was. Come to terms with how things are right now and start working with it. Try living for now and start dealing with things as they really are. Don't keep wishing things were back to what they used to be or it will just drive you crazy. Get busy making a list of how you can change things now and start doing it.
Take care.
