I’ve come to the conclusion that we spend way too much time in the past. I feel like a majority of us spend our days thinking about what could have been, what would have been, and what should have been, but never thinking about what IS. We overanalyze problems that have occured, thinking about what we should have done, or could have said, but it’s no use. The problem has already happened, and the consequence is already taking place. If you’re looking to fix the problem, you just can’t. But instead, you could be using your mind to think of ways to reduce the consequence, to make the best of a bad situation. To look at it in a new light. Life is about opportunities, and sometimes we take them, and sometimes we wave at them as they pass by. But all in all, it’s the decisions we make that define how our life is going to turn out. I think it’s absolutely crazy how one little thing can affect the rest of our lives. “If that didn’t happen, then this would have happened” or “if this would have happened then that would have happened.” It’s all curious to me how it can be that way, but it is. All I’m saying is that reminiscing about past events isn’t really helping you in the present.
The past makes us who we are, but the future leads us to who we’re going to be
