However, if you’re driven by the pain and suffering you’re feeling on a regular basis, you may feel the person or events of the past define you in the present. The physical or psychological distance can be a good option if you don’t want to be defined by the person or event causing pain.

Open up to Kindness

Learn to be kind to yourself. You shouldn’t feel unhappy if you struggle with letting go of the pain. When you find yourself occasionally sliding back into an unhappy state of mind, simply forgive yourself and reset your emotions, Healthline reports.

Concentrate on Yourself

One of the most important parts of letting go of the past and learning to move on: put the majority of your time into your own peace of mind. Remember you cannot change the way anybody else thinks or acts, and you should simply look to improve yourself.

The process of letting go of the past is a tough one which cannot be completed in a short period of time. Instead, you should be willing to admit when you make mistakes on the journey towards a better life for you, and your family. Embracing the changes you are making and allowing yourself the time to change your own psychological state is the first step towards letting go and living a happier life.
