Now let’s talk about the one element that dark types are made of and for; the past. The past is a silent disease that slowly creeps in takes control of the life of a dark type and breaks it. Many Dark types are usually behind or left aback by their pasts. They simply find it difficult to forgive. Whether it is the bully’s first and last name they remembered in kindergarten or the one time they got rejected by a crush. They just find it difficult to forget the past, move on, and let go. In this article, I’m going to explain the two types of past experiences that many dark types have.
The positive feeling anyone gets when they think of something they experienced in the past is called a nostalgic feeling. Many Dark types go through this a lot as adolescents. They look back to a wonderful time they had at a certain period and wished they could go back to experience it again. But they are wrong for doing this. Instead of going back in time why not recreate it, or better yet expand on it. Life is like riding a bicycle after all if we look back we will only miss our way and fall from it. So, instead of looking back on a joyous time, it is wise to look forward to a wonderful time with friends, family, or by yourself.
Not only is nostalgia bad for you grudge keeping is worse. Keeping a grudge is what many Dark types specialize in. Although they are not the only nature that keeps a grudge, dark types take it to the next level. Not only do they keep a grudge, but they can keep it for life. Many dark types find it difficult to forgive, they always take any and every offense to heart making it into something personal. What many dark types fail to understand is that keeping grudges only stops them from living their lives to the fullest. Whilst the oppressor or bully must have moved on or forgotten about the experiences many dark types will remember it giving their perpetrators room for victory. The best revenge in life is to succeed and rub it in the face of your enemies. If your enemies are dead just like how you might want them to be, how will they see that their efforts in discouraging you failed? That is why many dark types must forgive and move on because it does not just help you to focus on other important things in life like your loved ones, but it will also heal your soul.
In my next article, I will be discussing how to forget the past.
