Your past can hold you back from living your life to the fullest but only if you let it. We all have something in our past that can cripple us and leave us feeling like we will never amount to anything. Something that can keep us from being who and what we are meant to be but we can’t let that happen. Past actions and behaviors can hold us back but not the past itself. We all have something about ourselves that we would like to change. Things we need to let go of in order to progress.
Our past and everything we have ever endured makes us who we are today. We should never let our past ruin our future. I’ve had some pretty bad years in the past but I have used them as stepping stones and lessons learned. My past has made me stronger today and going forward.
You can hold on to the lessons your past has taught you but don’t let any of it weigh you down and make you bitter. Learn and grow and then move on. My past does not define who I am or who I will become.
