My dad, Don, the one with all the great sayings, has a good one! Whenever he would hear one of his six children talking about some bad thing from the past he would say: “Once a week we take out the trash and once it’s out of the house we never think about it again. That’s how we should think about bad experiences.”
Once you have “taken out the trash” by doing the healing work, it is time to let it go and move on.
“Today I will take out the trash of my past and let it go.”
