Seeking the Past

I’ve been thinking a lot about the past. We need it. There are a lot of aspects about it that we don’t like to look back on, but it’s necessary if we don’t want to repeat the same steps over and over. We want to learn and improve ourselves. That’s the only way we can really move forward with purpose is to learn from our past. I feel terrible for those who just can’t seem to grasp it. We have so many people that we leave behind. So many friends and even family. But we can’t help it. In order to move on, sometimes it’s required. You have to do what’s best for you in that exact moment. No one can tell you how to feel. Only you know it.

It’s okay to be stuck in the past. It’s not recommended that you linger there for a very long time, but sometimes you have to make a visit to everything you left behind. It’s important, so they say. A lot of the things we go through, we can’t put words to. They’re feelings that just can’t be spoken. They have to be felt and worked through. That’s always the hardest part. Especially for me. Working through the past is a difficult thing. I don’t really have any inspiring words today to lift spirits. It’s been more about getting everything out there. Venting to make sure nothing gets built up. Because that’s how you really hurt yourself. By keeping everything inside until it bursts with ferocity. So, as always, maybe we just keep going. It has to get better. Because that’s life. Up and down, and then back up again.
