We are all guilty of living in the past now and again, but what is important is that we don't live in our past.
We CANNOT do anything about the past, we can learn from it and apply those lessons of growth to how we act in the future.
This is the ONLY time we should allow the past to guide us, that being for growth.
If we live in the past we rob ourselves of happiness because the past is where regret, anger, resentment live.
Happy memories also reside there and these are the good memories to relive.
Stop living in the past and instead learn from the past experiences and allow them to show you how to grow from them and achieve a greater happiness today!
