Never forget where you came from. That advice is an excellent reminder for all of us as we take our journey through life.
Some have been blessed to have had a wonderful journey so far, and most others had struggles, adversity, broken dreams, heartaches and losses.
No matter what our past has been, we ought to be thankful for the good things, and mindful of the struggles we’ve had. As our path turns into greener pastures, not forgetting our past struggles helps us empathize with those who are now going through that phase. It allows us to be kind and gentle to them.
It is also important not to let our past define us. Use past experiences as a guide of what to do and what NOT to do. Had a kind boss? BE like them. Had an unkind boss? DON’T perpetuate what they did.
Take the best of all that has happened to you, free yourself from the unhappy memories, and forge a kinder and gentler life forward.
Never forget where you came from, but don’t allow yourself to be defined by it.
