The past is a place we are familiar with. We know what happens there and nothing ever changes. So many of us try to go back to the past and hold onto it because the fear of the future is too much. The past is filled with pain which is why we must move forward because even though the future is scary, it allows us a chance to be brave. Familiarity doesn’t always mean healthy, safe, or good. The only right path is one that takes you forward towards healing and good things.
