Don’t get me wrong the past should neither be forgotten nor accepted, it should be “a thing“ to be treasured and lessons to be learnt and then you MOVE ON.
Those who choose to simply forget the past miss out on its fullest potential, good, bad or indifferent. There are valuable lessons to be learned from it. And those who choose to ask the right questions about their past are most prepared to live life to the fullest in the present. Too many of us live our lives defined by the choices we made in the past. This shouldn’t be the case, especially since each new day presents a brand new opportunity to become a new person on a new road destined for a new future.
We must be mindful of the company we keep and the cultures we function in because they will either bring us inspiration or derail our progress. Derailed progress, stomps growth!! And when we have no direction, we tend to look back on the past.
So, when should the past be left in the past? And are there some things we should refuse to remember?
Join Host Tracy L. Bell at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via Blog Talk Radio as she explore this topic and explain when the past should remain the past and how the constant reliving of it can become toxic!!!!
