Be more than your past

Like they say, every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.

Your past will only ever define your future if you allow it.

They also say that the past may be blemished, but the future is still perfect.

There is a reality between all this idealism that we can’t escape, and that is the impact of the poor decisions that we may have made before.

But don’t let that define any more than your accountability to make it right.

And you must make it right or else you drag your past with you into the future.

Make amends as best as you can, and focus on the road ahead.

Those that support you must be cherished on that journey, and those that don’t must be respected because we can never dictate to others how they must accept or forgive our past mistakes.

Just because we may have chosen to move on doesn’t mean that they are ready to do the same.

Accept this, and be better. You can’t change your past, but you can redefine who you want to be in future.
