Letting Go Of Negative Thoughts
Interrupt them. When you start thinking negative thoughts, tell yourself you’re not going to revisit a past event. Remind yourself that it’s fruitless to relive the past.

Focus on the present. When regret enters your mind, break the thought pattern by focusing on the current vision for your life.
