I wonder why we let our past rule us at times?
It may be directly related to a past incident that keeps resurfacing.
I may also be due to trauma that we experienced some time ago.
I think it's a good thing to learn from the past and bring it forward into the present.
The trick is to make the past a minor player here in the present.
That way we won't miss a thing in the here and now.
So the next time the past comes knocking, open the door, greet it and send it on it's way.
Besides, it's all water under the bridge.
