A past- we all have one. And you know what- for most of us (yes me included) it hasn’t been a Ozzie and Harriet existence. We’ve had people reject us, we’ve had people yell at us and belittle us. And yeah, it came from people that should love us the most..like our parents. But we must remember that even they are human and carry their own baggage and they very often revisit the hurt they felt on us.
Shake it off. You are your own person with your own personality and your own desires and goals. Let the “garbage” from the past go..and view a whole new world just waiting to greet you:)
