I Believe In the Future Not the Past

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 80 People

    Amen!

    I've been through so much transformation, the past doesn't even feel real. I dropped any and all people who insisted on mirring themselves in their or my past. Sometimes, you just gotta start afresh. We only move one way --- FORWARD!

    Yes

    Future is great to know. Past I don't want to know anymore.

    Forward It Is For Me

    You got to put your past behind you - Disney Lion King I guess you have to come to terms with it, the good, the bad and the ugly.  Moving forward is the hard part, but once you take the first step momentum is behind you.

    I'm a firm believer in astral projection and other means of accessing alternate realities. Something about parapsychology and psuedoscience is just so fascinating.
