Earlier in the day,i was listening to some songs on youtube with my phone and later in the evening i felt like listening to them again, but instead of trying to search for them all over again, i decided to just click on the backward bottom so i can listen to them from last to first and it felt different, great and more interesting. That was when it occur to me that, since i have come of age, i have always being told,to look forward and forget the past because forward is the only way to go, which is true but we all need to look backward too, looking backward(in this context: your past) is not the problem, it is what you do with your past that matters.
You can focus on all the bad stuffs that has happened in the past or you can learn some very valuable lessons from your past.
Lessons when learned, can teach you how to make your future better, how to make right choices and never make such mistakes again.
Even when things that are beyond your control happens, you can decide not to act negatively on it because you have being there and you have done that.
Looking forward is awesome but also taking time to analyse the past and under the process is also great.
The definition of insanity by Albert Einstein is doing the same thing, over and over again and expecting different results. The past may be terrible but it is also the map and the road to the future. It is not okay to forget your past and still make the same mess ups.
I’m not saying live in the past, I’m just saying let your past not just be a past but a key to unlocking the future that is before you. The future is new and beautiful because we don’t know much about it yet but the past we know and that can give us a glimpse of what to expect in the future if we learn a thing or two from it.
Have a great day, God bless!
