I found the title for this post on Facebook this morning and had an “ah ha” moment right away.
I am always being reminded of my past in one way or another. Whether it’s a thought, something someone says, guilt, things I wish I hadn’t done, things I wish I had done, and the list goes on.
There comes a time in your life when you realize that people judge your present by what you have done in the past or was it watching too much of Dr. Phil who would always say that? But is this really true? Can you never get past your past? Do others judge your past only by the ‘bad’ things you did?
People change. They change their hairstyle, their lifestyle, their friends and relationships, they change jobs, buy a new car, move to a different house, etc. Change is always happening and hopefully as we get older, wisdom enters the picture.
I don’t want to be judged by my past. Actually I don’t want to be judged at all. I want to live my life in the present and if people want to judge me, then let it be the ‘present’ me.
I want to learn from the past but I don’t want to live there anymore!
Want are your thoughts on this???
