As David Simon said “…unless you loosen the hold your past has had on you, your future will unfold in much the same way.”
Wow. I love that. This is true for me at least. I am in the journey of my life, like others, and what I am doing differently is sharing it with people. In the past I have not shared what was going on with me. I have found this allows people to make judgements and assumptions about what is going on with me and within me. It has not always been wonderful judgements and assumptions.
I didn’t even realize what a hold my past had on me until recently. How I had exactly repeated a pattern that I thought I had closed the book on.
Well now I’m going to face it head on, deal with it and come out the other side.
Here we go.
