    Knowing Ourselves

    Complex Human

    This is so true. How many of us have forgotten that the essence of life is to live in the present and not to worry too much about the past and the future? I mean, it is ok to think about the future and look back to your past. Our future and past guide us. But if we cling on them...

    I think that the only reason people hold onto memories so tight is because memories are the only things that dont change; when everybody else does.
