It's Who I Am

I have so many bad things in my past that I do sometimes wish that I could change them but then again would I be who I am today if I did.  So much of what I have gone through has made me the person I am today.  Sure it would be nice to not have went through some of the pain in my life but I try to look at it like this, going through that pain makes me appreciate all the good things in my life so much more.  It makes me realize the important things that matter most.  As for my future, I can either go on a path that will continue to lead me into more pain by staying trapped in the past or I can take a turn for the better and change my future let this path lead me to more joy and happiness than ever before.   Letting go of your past is hard believe me but in the long run letting go of it gives you the opportunity to start over and begin anew.  All the possibilities that you had given up on are now yours for the taking again.  So don't let your past hold you back from achieving your dreams for the future.

Amazing. Well, anyway it's good you were able to let go of your painful past.

I haven't been on this earth for very long, but I feel like i've been through enough hardships to last me at least ten more years, I wish I could have a break from it all! I can't wait for the day when I can come to terms with it all and just let it be.

i can really relate to what you said

yup i agree with you.<br />
<br />
am trying to do the same.

Your right Thumper, but not the way you think. I'm facing reality in our situation right now, sometimes that's what it comes down to, it doesn't mean I am running away just that this is the way things are.

Thank you!
