You can look back on your life at all the things that went wrong. Think of all the shoulda, woulda, coulda’s. Fact is that choices were made and what was done is done.
Whatever our choices were, they have led us to now and who we are presently.
When dealing with the past, it is healthy to learn from our mistakes and make changes for the better in ourselves or our environment- wherever and whatever that may be.
Nostalgia is great for taking a trip down Memory Lane, however we must remember not to stay there and become trapped by what was, whether good or bad.
We are the product of our own experiences, not just in life, we also learn from the characters we read in books or see in movies or television. Even a song lyric can touch us and inspire our take on the world.
When dealing with events from the past, it is important for us to go forward and learn from our mistakes, lest we wallow in dispair and do nothing, or worse: deny everything and blame everyone else.
Our choices make us who we are, but it is our actions that define us.
