Staying Angry At Someone Else

Next, get specific about how long you’re going to waste your energy being angry at someone else’s past bad behavior. Accept it happened and then move on. You don’t have to be or stay friends with them, but for your own mental health you do have to let it go. Always set a timeline for how long you are not going to forgive them: a week, month or year. Limit the time you will allow yourself to think negatively about the person or event to no more than five or ten minutes every other day. Keep reducing the frequency, until
you are at once a month. Then stop thinking about it. Assign yourself activities that will help you to better manage your life and control thoughts that spoil life for you. Then accept it is part of the past and move on.
