Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize of God’s heavenly calling in Christ Jesus.

For every negative, hurtful, abusive thing that happened to us, it’s in our best interest to forget it. It does us no good remembering the pain of our past. Yes, we can learn from our mistakes, but we don’t have to stay in that place of guilt, shame, or hurt.

When negative experiences or the foolish things we’ve done enter our minds, we replace those thoughts by speaking the Word of God. If the thought of a hurtful experience enters our minds, we open our mouths to declare, “the blood of Jesus has removed the pain of my past according to Hebrews 9:14.” If the thought of guilt or embarrassment enters our minds based on some foolish thing we did, we must declare, “I’m free from guilt and shame because there’s no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus according to Romans 8:1.”

We may think it’s beneficial to hold on to our past, but it’s not. Make a conscious effort to forget every negative or hurtful thing in our past to enjoy this wonderful life God has for us.
