Don't look back....
Absolutely! All of the changes and hard times you have experienced, have given you the opportunity to grow. Your whole life will be different with your new knowledge and life lessons. You will find that you are more aware and fulfilled.
Everyone has trials in their lives, some more than others, it seems, but nonetheless we all have heartache. As we age and grow into ourselves, we seem to react better to trying circumstances. We get much more comfortable with who we are, more accepting of everything, and able to handle whatever it may be with less drama and pain. All of this is, of course, because of everything we have gone through.
We are who we are, because of where we have been
We end up being grateful for all the troubles we've seen. We discover the reasons for most of the problems, what our contribution was to the dysfunction of the situation, and why it had to happen as it did. We develop some wisdom about life and a knowing of how to handle anything. We are composite of our lessons.
Use all you have learned to prepare a better life for yourself. Fill yourself with joy, do what you want to do.... you have earned it. You have weathered the storm and now the skies are clear and the sun is shining brightly.
"You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space." Johnny Cash
