Don't stuck in the past, the future is waiting.

"The future is scary but you can't just run back to the past because it's familiar."

I was watching a video from the series "How I Met Your Mother" when a character in the series was telling her partner this phrase, the story of the article was actually inspired by her, because her phrase affected me very much.

In many cases, we prefer remembering the past over discovering the future, because man is by nature afraid of the unknown. The future is unknown to us, so we fear adventure and discovery. We prefer to stay on the known and content past, even if it is sad or painful.

I know a friend who applied for a job and was rejected. The following year, she refused to apply again, because she was stuck in the past and afraid of being rejected again, so frightened that she didn't even try because for her the outcome was settled, which is rejection. But this is completely wrong. Destiny gives her a second chance to try, but she is afraid of what will come. She judged herself based on the past, and did not give herself a chance to discover what the future holds for her.

Another friend, who is experiencing a very toxic relationship, had a good relationship with her boyfriend when he was trying to get her attention, he was doing many nice things to make her fall in love with him, but after I reciprocated his feelings and said about it, he changed and became rude and neglectful, and mistreated her always calling me crying because of his neglect Tell her to move on, tell her she deserves a better person, but her heart is stuck in the past only in the beautiful moments and neglects the present because of the fear of the future of being alone or not finding someone else.

We often refuse to be freed from the past, because we fear the future, we fear the unknown. Let me tell you that discovering the unknown is better than living it, because staying in the past is neglecting the present and the future.

Some times you need to go through the fear to see the beauty on the other side.

Who knows, maybe the unknown to come is better than the past that we hold on to and refuse to let go.

Do not be afraid, calm down, take a deep breath and go to your destiny. Free yourself from all restrictions and embark on the journey of life to explore the wonderful future.

  • Make the past your teacher, the present your friend, and the future your goal.

  • Do not allow the past to cancel your present and your future.

  • Learn to let go of the past, accept it, forgive it and let it go.

The past is gone and cannot be changed, the present is here, enjoy every moment of it, the future is unknown. Go and try to discover it but don't stress yourself about it.

Thanks to all my sponsors I am grateful to you.

So true, my dear doc. As they always say, those things that happen to us are either lessons or blessings, either way, it is a win-win situation. Let those failures be the stepping stones of success.

Friend, but it is that our internal struggle that seems to have no end, is like in comics a little angel remembering your past and another remembering your future, the key is to live in the present, that's where you will receive less damage

Beautiful motivational words. I am currently stuck in a past where I am happy with my father and find it very difficult to move on into the future without him even though I am surrounded by many people who love me...

Dear Jelena, I know how much you love your father, but clinging to the past will not bring him back to you, it will prevent you from enjoying the present, it's your days that pass, make them count, you have wonderful children and your mother is there, they are enough reasons to smile every day

The past has nothing to offer us except its lessons, dwelling on it won't change a thing. Focus more on the present if you truly wanna be happy.

We will never know what the future holds, but we can make a way to predict it. If you are carefully doing things right, you'll be lead to a good future, and vice versa. Past is past, we shouldn't live with it. Dwell in the future and anticipate the future. That's the secret to survival.

Just like that, my friend, focus on building a good future by making good our actions in the present. Sow good in the present, you will reap good in the future, but the past is experience and nothing more

No matter what has happened to us in the he past, it's always advisable for us to think forward... Remaining in an abusive relationship and dreaming of better days only makes the future look more bleak and nightmarish
