The voices in the market say “forget the past, it is all gone, put it behind,” but the past can be your greatest teacher and source of comfort.
If you look behind with curious eyes, you see how many battles you have fought and won. How many tearful goodbyes, how many times you’ve suffered lost and you still summoned up the courage to open your heart and love again. How many times you’ve been betrayed and still were powerful and true to give others one more chance and then another more. Of course you made mistakes, as we all do, but you were loved to be forgiven and set free to begin anew.
The past, when looked upon with gentle eyes, will help you get through what you’re struggling with today. This too shall pass.
I love you.
