Time is the correlation of change measured in an object. The simplest way to understand this is looking at a clock while walking across the room. As you change your physical space, the 'time' changes with you. This correlation is unique and absolute in existence. In other words, if at 10:14am, you were eating a chocolate donut, you cannot go back in time to change what you were doing at 10:14am because in order to do so would fundamentally have to alter what 10:14am means. In other words, if there weren't two of you (one eating a donut, the other watching) at the precise moment it happened, then you couldn't create it afterwords. And if you tried to deny eating a chocolate donut at 10:14 am, how could you then travel back in time to stop eating that donut, when in order for that to occur, you would have had to have eaten that donut in the first place? How can we travel back to change something that didn't happen, and if it did happen, and it caused us to want to change it, how could we affect it? As for past, there is nothing to change it, so it's better not to try to change it. Just take a lesson from your past and move forward.

Yes, past has been your doings before. You cannot do anything to arrange them or correct any unless you corrected those mistakes at the present. Past are just memories that we held upon. It is something we can relate to others as our own experiences. It is the source of your present undertakings in life. We have been product of the past. We learn from it. WE improve our life to become better than than the past.

In my opinion, we really should think of our past, cause, as a Greek poet said, we climb to our ancestors shoulders, to see the future... that means, that a man without a past, has definately no present, and no future...

It`s good to keep in mind your past, to know better what to do in difficult situations, because some of our memories, always will help us . Sometimes the past can be so bad, and when some people that what to make us bad thins, or just wish us all the bad things in the world, it`s not just fine . Maybe you were in a relationship that wasn`t so good, or something like that .

The past should be remembered. There are mistakes that we made. Lessons that we can learn from making those mistakes. After all, making a mistake once is just a learning experience or rather it can be. Not paying attention to making the mistakes made in the past is just foolishness. By ignoring our past, we decrease the opportunities of a successful future. Therefore we must remember the past, but also look forward towards the future. Apply the lessons of yesterday for tomorrow.

I think that we should think about our past only so that we can ggrow by learning from our mistakes. It's critical that you don't dwell on it because you can't change what has already happened and you have to make your future happen and not live in the past. Best of luck to you.

We have to think about the past in order to understand the present. If we never think about the past, how can we know who we are? We do need to understand, though, that the past can never be changed. To twist a popular saying,"What was, was." There is no going back, no making things better or worse or whatever. It's done. We must live today.

hi there! For me it is important to learn from the past in order for us to do good in the future. I think it is normal that sometimes we think of the events that had happened before but not to a point that we keep on thinking about it every time. We should not allow our "past" to hunt us everyday especially the bad ones instead, we should take it as a learning experience and a challenge.

I think about the past when I connect some happenings of the present to what I believe were influenced by the past. There are indeed lessons learned from the past. What we did in the past spells our present and what we do today spells our tomorrow.

I try not to worry about the past too awfully much, what has happened, happened and sometimes there is nothing that can be done about it except to learn from our past mistakes.

I think we should always keep the past in our minds, but not to take it too seriously and we should ALWAYS learn from our mistakes so as to not make the same ones.. again.
