” Never be a prisoner of your past, it was just a lesson not a life sentence.”
I don’t know who wrote this one but when I saw it, it spoke to me. It’s true that one’s past has a huge influence on the present and one may say that it shapes the person you later become; but let it not be a prison. Let us not hold on to the past hurts and tragedies. It’s true it was painful, dark and traumatising but we gotta look beyond that, see it as a life lesson and move forward to the future we desire not the one we fear.
Whatever’s happened to you, don’t let it hold you down, use it as a catapult to move forward. Don’t sit in the driving seat of your life and drive looking in the rearview mirror. I have had many times in my life when I thought that it was the end, that nothing good was ever going to happen; sometimes we find ourselves in that place between a rock and a hard place and you begin to think: “this is it, this is the end” isn’t it? Here’s the good news:
“No matter the length of the night, the morning will come and the sun will rise again.”
Looking at the past as a lesson not a life sentence is how you turn your scars into stars.
