Any suggestions on how to let go of past regrets. I've been clinical depressed 3 times in my 54 years. Every time it starts with reliving past regrets and dwelling on how I should have made different decisions. My current situation isn't all that bad, just in a job that I don't like with no future. I was employed for 14 years with a large airline but laid off in 2001. I constantly dwell on how if I had made different decisions I would have been able to keep my job back than. It haunts me night and day. I've been on Cymbalta about 4 months and feel better than I did. Just want to let go of the past and move on, but the rumination just won't go away. Any suggestions?

Learn to stay in the "NOW". Just in this very moment. Take life one day at a time. Living in the past gets us nowhere fast. It takes a lot of energy and thought, that could be spent elsewhere. Learn to be mindful. There are many books on this. Try googleing for one. It will really help you.

I hope that you can get past this and move on. Try not to feel regrets, start fresh each day and live life to the fullest. I hope that this helps some.

Hugs, Karen
