I Can Not Change My Past

The person that I am today is not the same as the one from a few years ago. I often wish that I could turn back time to rewrite my personal histories. Knowing what I am capable of nowadays makes this particular desire of mine even stronger.

I wonder how different my life would have turned out to be like had my younger self been equipped with the same kind of knowledge and skills as I am today? The truth of matter is that I will never find out what my life would have been like had I been a different person in my younger years, because no amount of technological advancement can truly grant me the opportunity to relive what is lived and has expired.

Should I dwell on what has come to pass? Or, should I be grateful for all the lessons and life experiences that my past has imprinted in me? Without having to go through those trying times, I would not have been strong enough to go through the ones of today. Without having to deal with those past trial and tribulation, I would have never taken the extra steps to face up to my fears, while simultaneously being made into a tough cookie in the process.

Although my past wasn’t gloriously rosy; however, it was mine. I can never change it.

One thought on “I Can Not Change My Past

  1. Life is all about going forward. Past good moments should be cherished all life and bad moments should be forgotten because remembering past bad or not so good moments, can never create a beautiful future and can ruin the present. Joyful feelings [of past or present] attract more and more joyful moments [in future] and sad or disappointing feelings [of past or present] attract more of such feelings [in future]. Embracing good moments and moving ahead is life all about.
    I don’t know whether I should ask you, but could not resist so asking you one question. Respond only if it feels proper for you to reply. After reading many of you posts, I feel that you are not happy deep inside of you. I can understand that life is not always rosy but still one can make out from your words that something inside of you is not happy. If you feel proper, you can share your feelings with me. Certainly its very personal to you but if you feel it right to share, you can. Taking the pain inside of you for long time will not fetch you the life you deserve [ie. your best life]. Take care.
