  1. human life is like a river-having a beginning in the past, continuing in the present and aiming at the future, so you can't just get rid of the past, and you can't even think about the future – these are related things. The wisdom is not to freeze out the past if it is not at all rosy, dark, painful, complex, and so on. The wisdom is to use past experiences in the present and future. As the saying goes, the wise man learns from his mistakes. If these were some difficult experiences-you need to get healing from your wounds, if there are any serious delusions-you need to admit them, repent, get rid of them and move on.

    9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
    (1 John 1: 9)

  2. Here's an elementary one: just don't think. Make yourself realize that the past is the past, nothing can be changed, it's just a relic. The only benefit of thinking about the past is that you can draw conclusions and analyze your shoals in order to avoid this in the future.

    The future – nothing to fear. Personally, I do not panic at all, they say, and what will happen next, and how, and when. Depending on your temperament, you can easily plan your entire life, or you can rely on spontaneous decisions, as I do. Well, really: maybe I've made grandiose plans for the next couple of years, and then a chandelier will fall on me, or a hamster will bite me to death, or something else? That's why in most cases I act according to circumstances, it's a challenge to myself, because life is more interesting.

    p. s But this does not mean that you need to give your life in the hands of a mythical fate. Set goals for yourself and go for them in cold blood.
