Memories are a funny thing. While we might mistake them for harmless moments in our rear-view mirror, you’d be surprised how often they paint our present.
Take a random memory from five years ago. Don’t overthink it. Just picture it in your mind’s eye.
How many of you instinctively painted it black? Unconsciously turned your nose up at your choices?
While the past holds many mistakes and ugly choices, it’s integral not to judge our failures.
We need to go easier on the past. To reflect on former relationships and events with greater kindness.
Only here can we set ourselves free.
