When practicing mindfulness, an attitude of non-judgemental observation is essential. Let go of the desire to be somewhere else or to need specific outcomes. For example, if you hold resentment for another, you may be saying to yourself, “They should apologize” or “I should not feel this way”. Holding onto thoughts like these constrict your true self and full potential.
Free yourself by accepting things just the way they are. Recognize and honour your true feelings, then direct your energy towards healing and growing. Instead of saying the above statements, you might choose to say instead, “That is history. I now choose to heal myself and move forward. Maintaining an open mind and non-judgmental attitude yields great power for liberating yourself.
