I Believe In the Future Not the Past

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 82 People

    Yes

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

    Honestly, why not? I believe in reincarnation and that you can be born into a different body. I think it would be arrogant to think that something like this is impossible,
