“What you need to know about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment. And this is the moment you can choose to make everything new. Right now.”
We’ve all had our bad memories, bad experiences, bad everything. I see it everyday and I too have been there before, who hasn’t?
Something we don’t realize is not everyone is the same. We are all are own person and we can’t let people or experiences in the past scare us for the future. We need to let go of the past because it’s over, you can’t do anything about it – move on from it because God has a better thing in store for you.
This is a problem I had, but something and someone changed that for me. This person helped me to believe in things again and is such an encouragement to me honestly. You helped me to be positive and not be insecure. You helped me to believe that there are good people out there and I love you for that (You know who you are) I experienced a lot of heartache with things and people and it made me into this person who believed everyone was like that, but they aren’t. There are people in this world who will either pretend that they care about you (which it will come back to them later), really care about you (and actually show it) and the ones who don’t care about you (the people who do not matter). You can’t set expectations of people because they have their own free will. All you can do is accept it because everything happens for a reason, just because one bad thing happened doesn’t mean it’s ALWAYS going to happen, not everyone is the same, and not everyone is worth the trouble. Stop wasting your energy on being angry and paranoid, use your energy on things that are beneficial to you. Like my Aunt said, close the book and don’t open it again.
I hear about this kind of stuff all the time when it comes to relationships, seriously it’s a problem for the age groups of high school and college students. A piece of advice I have for those reading this, don’t not trust someone just because of someone else’s own mistakes. It’s not their fault that happened to you and you need to let someone who really does care about you, care about you – there are people who really do too. If they mess it up, they mess it up, there’s nothing you can do about it. There’s nothing you can do about anything.
Everything happens for a reason, we need to learn from our experiences and apply them to our lives to prevent them from the future. If there were things in the past that hurt you, forget about that experience, person whatever it is and move on because it is not worth the great opportunities you will face in the future. In the end know you will be happy and everything will be worth it =)
