Much of our past makes us the person we are today and that past is often less than perfect. It stands to reason that whilst we can’t change our personal history it doesn’t mean that is has to dictate our future. We can’t ignore the past, or pretend it hasn’t happened, but we can learn to leave its influence behind. In so doing we give ourselves permission to change and move on.
