Yeah we have all learned about them in English. The damn section in grammar was always there till class 12th.
Three words that make our life run in circles.
Three words that revolve around us, at all the time. We are continuously thinking about our past in our present and then keep on thinking about the so called impact on the future.
But is it worth so much of an effort?
I completely agree that our past, was our present at one time and our present was the future once. The ONLY thing that is constant is the change in the tense.
The present is often made out of the past that we were living in.
But then, how good is it to carry the burden of the past. To stay in it and to carry the burden of the same. The future is made up by our actions of the present. But constantly thinking about the past, hampers both our present and our future. I know, I have suffered so much in my past, I know, the suffering that I have caused to myself. And, I do not want to be a part of it.
It has given me memories- both good and bad. I wish I could go back and erase all the bad stuff from that past. But then, I also know, the good will not have any value if the bad is taken away from it.
This is MY life. And, today, I wish to take upon the full responsibility of the fact that YES I have a past. Nothing too drastic, but, in the future, I am going just take the lessons from it, and make sure that my happiness is not hampered by it.
I am going to meet new people, make them a part of my life. And, they have to accept me, through my past. I am me, because of everything that has happened to me. And, I have come to realise, that the day I accept my past, the day, I am not scared of it- It will stop bothering. Stop scaring me.
And, this also implies- That I am not judging people by their pasts. Especially since I do not want to be judged by my past.
Change is the only thing that is constant. I am ready- and ready to accept it- head on. I hope, that this positivity- makes me truly happy.
