We hang on to the past so tightly. Fond memories and stories. Pictures and special mementos. We also hold on to things that offer us no benefit. Perceptions and expectations. Fears and regrets. The person you are today was built upon all of your experiences, good and bad, but you don’t need to let those things define you.
I was asked a question today. If I could tell my 16 year old self anything, what would it be? My response was, no matter how bad things look right now, everything is going to be all right. Just keep walking.
