Are you living in the past? Do you keep thinking about a lost love in the past? Do you keep thinking about the good old days?

If this describes you, then you are living in the past. Sometimes this can become all-consuming and it gets to a point where it interferes with the present and your future.

Don't allow yourself to get into this rut because it can effect your dating, relationships, meeting new single women, and scoring with single women.

How does it interfere? Well, when all you can think about is all the good times you had with women in the past or one particular woman you were crazy about in the past, you may start comparing the times you're having now, which seems empty and boring and you make a really big mistake by comparing the girls you meet in the present to previous girlfriends and they never seem to measure

So, what's the point? You need to let go of the past because it is causing you problems in your ability to enjoy the present and the future and it can have a devastating effect on your relationships with women. So, how do you let go of the past and previous serious relationships of the past? Try these exercises:

1. Say to yourself daily, "I really had some great times in my past. But, now I must let go of the past and say good bye to all those fun times. From now on I'm going to focus on having a good time in the present and I will enjoy many happy times in the future. I will no longer be chained to the past, past relationships, lost loves, and bad experiences in my past.

2. Here's an exercise to get over a lost love in the past - Say to yourself daily, "_____________(name of girl), I really loved and cared for you and enjoyed all our happy times, shared love, and all the good times we shared, but now I must say good bye to you. I must let you go...I must get on with my life. Good bye, take care and I wish you much happiness in life." Just keep repeating this daily until she's completely out of your mind.

In closing, please don't fall into the rut of living in the
past. The past is past. Let go of it and enjoy life to the
fullest each and every day. Life is short and someday when you get older you may look back regretfully and wish you would have lived your life differently.
