We have no command or control over our past. While it’s true that all the things that have happened to us have the power to control our present, they will not be able to unless we allow them.
The past cannot be changed, forgotten, edited or erased. It can only be accepted.
A great answer to this quote is coming from Yahoo Answers: Acceptance is the key to all matters, you have to know why and accept it what cannot be changed. We as a people want what we cannot have we must accept what we can have.
Many people are so involved in their past that they are unable to move ahead in their life. Some unsuccessful relationship, some blunder or mistake, some lost source of happiness in the past can continually torment you. However, this is not the only option you have. You can always choose to let go.
When my youngest brother died, I also witnessed my mother dying. She was still there; physically. However, she was no longer present emotionally. The will to live left her. It took her years to mourn and I almost accepted that she will no longer be back. But she did, and on that day, she told me she was sorry. She told she had accepted her loss. Only then did I realize that she’s starting to live again.
The more you rebel against the past, the more it will hurt. Instead of letting it damage you and the people around you, you should move forward. And you can only do this when you embrace the past.
