We all had done some bad things, some things that we not proud of. Some things that we wish we could think twice before we had done it. We keep blaming ourselves for those mistakes, and sometimes those mistake can keep us from moving forwards.
We have to be kind to ourselves and we have to forgive our past in case to have a beautiful tomorrow. When you forgive, it doesn’t erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future. The past is just a story. God doesn’t make mistakes. Trust it, when someone ends up in your past, they’re there for a reason. Never look back on the past to make a decision, it would distract you from the now.
I always knew looking back on the tears would make me laugh, but I never knew looking back on the laugh would me cry. The past is inevitable, but suffering because of it is optional.
