A past occurrence that has already happened, having gone by is what I call past. Based on each individual's way of life, everyone has a past, it's an incidence or happening or experience that has occurred previously in a person's life. These past memories varies depending on each person's challenges, and they can either be good or bad. There is no man without a past, it comes with our daily livelihood, where we once lived, where we worked, friends we grew up with, where we have gone to or any definite happens around us.
Your past can either tramatize or motivate you. It does not come with what you feel or think at any given time, its how much you have give in for your past, it's okay to remember your past, maybe something really bad that has happened to you before or a lifetime experience that have always crossed your mind. Your past is responsible for your success or failure. Check back to your life, do you have an experience in the past that has always haunt you down? That has always pained you? Or in form of a regret? We have all heard stories of different people from different background, how they were nurtured since they were young either born from a poor background or born with a silver spoon, how some were physically abused, sick, denied a chance of survival or haunt down because of a family member's death.
Behind every successful man or woman, there is always a story to tell. Everyone of us has a bitter sweet memories especially while we were young but here is the question; have you allowed your past to motivate you or demotivate you. Our past has allowed many of us not to take opportunities that come out way, it has stopped our progress, stopped is from moving forward.
A short illustration:
Laura had been a promising child since she was a child, being an orphan who grew up with her cruel aunt, she was denied of what she wants, she loses every opportunity that comes her way, she never had the chance to pursue her dreams, she was even betrayed by her close friend who ruined her only opportunity of getting a scholarship. Later in life, Laura settles down for whatever that is available for her, she never pursue what her heart wants again because she had given in to defeat, she feels there is no good man on Earth again and what happen to her will happen again. So, she restricted herself, that she will never get what she wants in life.
As my friend will always say "Let the past go and die" our past is only a phase of our life with each experience therewith is supposed to make us strong, we should build on them and amend our ways. Either our past failures or the story of how we grew up, that should serve as our success story. Behind every success a man achieves in life, there is always a story and trust me things happen, everyone has a story to tell including you.
Do not allow your past to haunt you down, forget about your past and move on with your life. Do not give in to fear or defeat. Allow your past to go away.
