“We work hard to disown the parts of our lives that were painful, difficult, or sad. But just as we can’t rip chapters out of a book and expect the story to still make sense, so we cannot rip chapters out of our past and expect our lives to still make sense. Keep every chapter of your life intact, and keep on turning the pages. Sooner or later you’ll understand why every scene, every chapter was needed.”
Dont forget your past. It’s there for a reason.
Having said that, everyone is how they are today for a reason. Part of it will be the road that has led them thus far. That’s why I am totally against judging someone critically before knwing their story. Everyone has a story to tell. Jus listen enough and you will realize it.
