Can't decrypt my passwords: gpg: decryption failed: No secret key

I messed up my GPG secret key and password-store system here.
I do not understand how GPG works.
I removed with Seahorse my old secret key so now pass show command does
not shows any passwords out there.
pass show AvilagHalon/Telefonjaim/Telenor
gives this message.
gpg: decryption failed: No secret key
How did I get into this trouble?
I am going to change my Desktop Environment from Xfce4 to LXQt.
So when I am logged in at LXQt then I couldn't use passwords with pass,
or QtPass. I do not remember why not.
Probably I removed with Seahorse the old GPG secret key so I can't
decrypt my passwords stored in password-store.
At the same time I created a new key pair with gpg and tried to use with
it the password-store but without success.
What can I do now to get my passwords back?
Best, Paul Chany
