We get to where we're going because of the path we took in our past.
Sometimes we judge ourselves based on what happened in our past or our past experiences. I'm here to tell you that train of thought needs to change and stop all together.
We grow as individuals and as a person through our mistakes and our past. Our past is the past for a reason, if it wasn't, it would still be our present.
We can't judge ourselves or others due to the past. Some of the past is uncontrollable and quite frankly inevitable. We can only use the past as a point of reference to our future destination.
We need to learn to not settle, to not be so complacent with ourselves. We get to the point of comfort and we stay there. Staying in your comfort zone brings no challenges. No new insight of the person you are and what you can achieve.
We all have stuff in our past that we resent and that we wish we could take back, even change. What we don't realize is everything we have done up to now has never been in vein, but rather to teach a different things. It is our choice, as humans who have free will, to learn from it or keep bumping our heads.
My challenge to you is this,
Don't be resentful of the past but rather thank it for allowing it to change your future.
