"Scars remind us where we've been...they don't determine where we go." "You can't change where you've been, but you can choose who you'll become." I've been contemplating past and present recently. How much of our past determines our future?
What have we done in the past that needs to change so that our future can be better? Is the hope of the future worth the pain of the present as we work to change the results of the past?
I can make a better future, and it will be worth the pain of the present as I work to overcome my past. You can, too.
