Step Out of the Pit of Regret and Self-Hate

Dwelling in the past doesn't get you anywhere

Past regrets;

Let them go

Past rejection;

Let it go

Present circumstances;

Embrace them with confidence

Your past as a whole;

Embrace it as lessons learned and wisdom gained

Replace your self-hate with love of self

Look at what you've achieved

Look at how far you've come

Believe that you can succeed

Dwelling in the past will only lead to self-destructing misery

Understand that life is not easy

Step out of the pit of regret and self-hate

Believe that you can succeed

Leave your past in the pit and don't look back

The pit can stay there

Just walk away

Let love wash all your pain away

Believe in yourself;

And you'll begin to see that what's meant to be will be
