I find myself analyzing and thinking about the past a lot, to the point where it makes me more upset than necessary about things that may have happened. Learning from mistakes and bad experiences is essential, but there's a point where you have to accept what has happened and move on. In the midst of something terrible happening, it's hard to think that it's going to end up being for the better good, but think about it.. If some of your struggles didn't happen, where would you be? Somewhere totally different I'm sure. And maybe that doesn't sounds appealing or comforting right now, but in the long run, people develop and grow into who they are meant to be through these events. It's your job to take advantage of it the way you see fit and grow as much as possible with each adversity. We can't change the past, but we can choose what will happen in the future. Bundle all your lessons up in a ball and take them with you on the rest of your journey through life. YOU choose what turn you take next. Now get out there and make the most out of every moment.
