In today’s society, people live with an eye on the past. We love to remember how happy we used to be and how easy life was in a certain moment of our lives. It’s this longing feeling that keeps us from going forward, from growing, because we’re afraid we might lose what’s left from that past that we cherish so deeply. But once in a while, someone decides to stop living her or his life through this nostalgic lens, and get rid of that sense of discontent, not by trying to turn that life into what it used to be, but by breaking free from it, and do what they really want to do. There’s no way to delete your past, and we should appreciate the things that we’ve lived through, but we must not think that those are the best times in our lives, because that means giving up on what’s left of them.
