The past isn’t a good place to visit. Definitely not. In fact, it’s the worst place to stay.
But why can’t we just totally leave it behind?
Simple. It’s because the past is connected with the present, and if it wasn’t for yesterday, we wouldn’t be here today. And if it wasn’t for the past that freed the people in your life now, they would never have been with you in the first place.
No matter how painful the past had been, it’s something to thank for… For the memories, experiences, and most especially, for the lessons…
There are people in our lives that came first before the present, and there are people, too, who came first before us. It’s all a matter of time… A matter of now… A matter of what’s up as of the moment…
We shouldn’t compete with the past. It’s beyond our control. It happened before, meaning it’s out of our grip. All we have to do is let it be, and accept it.
The past is going to haunt us forever, no matter how we try to conceal it. Even when we try to not look back, something always twists our heads, telling us to stop for awhile, simply to check if we’re still affected or not.
What’s worse? At the end of the day, we discover that we still are, and we’ll always be.
