“You realize that our mistrust of the future makes it hard to give up the past.”
― Chuck Palahniuk.
We’ve got to look forward and keep moving, not delving into the past. This is especially hard if you have fears about what the future holds. As a stroke survivor I found that even my worries had worries. It was that much harder to think of the future not only because of fear, but also because my heart was stuck in the past.We must not let our hearts be offended. Why? Because, taking offense(at someone or something) keeps us in a place of pain and inhibits our growth. If we choose to live in a place of unforgiveness we’ll become that much more cold, and hardened, the good things of life cannot grow or flourish in rocky soil! Therefore, we need to let go of the past and of those things that hold us back. For what seems like ages I’ve lived in my past. Because quite frankly, having my independence was far better than my current bleak reality. However, I am no longer the person that I was, in fact none of us are. To remain the same would be to stunt our growth and limit ourselves. No matter what happens to you remember that “ You are not a victim but a victor!” In trying times it’s easy to get stuck in the former “better,” situations of our past. However, you must continue swimming forward or even in some cases treading water. Because, if you stop to consider the past too deeply, the weight of it will not only tie you up but cause you to sink. By remaining in my past I missed the good things in my present. The good news is, it’s never too late to begin moving forward. Indeed the sooner the better, and making a habit of it isn’t a bad idea either. Therefore, do not stop to consider your past for too long or too often. Far greater things lie ahead!
