“Oh yes, the past can hurt.  But you can either run from it or, learn from it!” –Lion King

How often do we dwell upon our past and forget to live in the present moment. How many times have you judged people by their past? Quite often?

That is one important mistake we have been committing all this while. As we keep driving towards the future, we keep leaving behind traces of our past. Let them be traces only. Do not follow them back!

At the end of the day, everyone is a learner, everyone has something to study, to observe, to learn!!

If you know you have made a mistake, learn from it. Try not to make the same mistake again. My dad always said, “it doesn’t bother me when you make a mistake, but it does when you repeat it once again!”

Every day is a blessing. Live it! Not everybody gets a chance to live as long to correct their mistakes. Not everybody gets a second chance. Sure everyone deserves one, but not everybody is as lucky as you. Be grateful.
Don’t keep reminding yourself of the past. That’s no good. Once it has brought you down. It’s time for you now to keep your head together, get up, dust yourself off and move on with your life. Again be conscious enough to not get yourself in the same position again. Also don’t think too much about what’s going to happen in the future. Sure have an idea as to where you are heading, but don’t stress yourself on it. What happens , happens for your good. Listen to your heart , try as hard as you can. Leave the rest.

When it comes to the other people, we tend to not have the same thinking process while analyzing them. We get too judgmental.

Everyone has a different story to tell. Everyone has a unique history. It might be good or bad. What really matters to you is the attitude the person has right now and his present outlook towards life. Do not assume stuff. Just because he chose wrong people over the right doesn’t mean he would do the same again. Give him a chance. May be he did learn from his past mistakes. Give him a chance to understand what it is like to feel right and do right. Help him. You have no idea what it is like to get over your mistakes and start anew. It’s so hard to keep telling yourself and to keep reminding yourself of the fact that a mistake again will cost you even more. There is so much self-doubt that they usually run extremely low on confidence.

So if you find people like this, please try not to judge them, but help them gather themselves up and stay with them until they can walk right again. After- all what are friends for.

So the past is the past. It’s done and dusted. You cannot do anything about it now. The future is highly unpredictable. What you have is this very moment. Use it wisely. Having said this don’t be afraid to take risks. You are either going to achieve something out of it or you are definitely going to learn something, aint ya! ;);)

“The past is an interpretation. The future is an illusion. The world does not move through time as if it were a straight line, proceeding from the past to the future. Instead time moves through and within us in endless spirals”  -  Shams of Tabriz
