If there is guilt holding you back, make sure you forgive yourself firstly and accept whatever the way it was. Drop it into a deep well and there is no need to look back at it in order to let go of the past and live in the present. And now if it is your ex, old friend, family member or relative who have hurt you in the past, forgiving them would only relieve them from the pain. If needed, apologize or console but your every step must be in cutting down negativities of the past.

6. Get Around Positive People

Stick with them and grow with a positive outlook.

7. Ask For Professional Help
