If you’ve had something bad happen to you in the past, the good news is that it’s over now. In this very moment, you are still you, and the past only exists in your mind. Whatever happened was simply one aspect of a very great big life, so focus on the positive in all the other aspects of your life. Maybe those memories are just too painful, but remember that you are human; emotions are meant to be felt and embraced. As for the past, you can soak up all of the good, let go of all the bad, and move forward into a brand new fresh start anytime you choose. Maybe this is easier said than done. But no matter what happens, you will always have yourself-your faith, who you are at your core, your thoughts and feelings and your memories as lessons learned and dreams of greatness yet to come.
