is your current life part of the bitterness of your life the past?

I was quite sure that everyone has experienced dark time in the past. All the unpleasant experiences are not good to be recalled again, but we can not forget them just like that, because in my opinion, our bad life in the past is the reflection of our contemporary life from the past. Is your current life part of your life in the past ?

Without the experiences of the past we would not have learned the lessons that make us who we are today. That being said. We all have the power to choose what we deem important in this world. We can choose to value doom, gloom and every little adversity we have ever encountered OR we can choose to see and value the goodness in the world, ourselves and the people in our lives. In the midst of any turmoil, we can find HAPPINESS. It is merely our choice.

Your explanation is was a little bit confusing to me. The bad experiences is also our choice. I though that everybody choose to be happy forever if we could. Life is tough, and no one knows what will happen to our life in the future. Thank you any for your response and have a nice day.

I think that what I am today is the sum total of all my experiences in the past, both good and bad. Life is not a bed of roses, neither is it a string of thorns. But, whatever we've been through, let's consider those as learning experiences to make our lives better, not only for us, but also for those around us. Have a great life and God bless you, my friend.

If it is, I guess I was a bit naughty. I better start behaving now. Hopefully, that will give my next life more opprotunities. Best Wishes!

Every individual will have some bad experiences in their past, but not get upset the bitter experiences also gave some good results in your life at least you will get to withstand and lead a better life.Ups and down in life is common you have to study and think it is life. Don't recalled this experiences again and again it will spoil your present. A wise man only live in the present. For example while you are eating an ice cream if you are thinking any bad experience you can't enjoy its taste the ice cream smelts and finish you can't enjoy its original taste.

Sometimes, all the unpleasant memory reappears and bring me back to the past. I always try to forget the past that even if when we were happy. I had a very tough time when I was a little boy and my mom had a story about my childhood. These memories are still clearly cling in my mind. I just try to forgive myself for everything that had happened bad in my life.

Whoever we are now is because of our past. We may not forget our past but we go on with our lives not remembering those dark past, I take the good memories and I learned my lessons on the bad ones. I had problems with my lungs before, I was diagnosed having PTB minimal while in the process of employment. I was unemployed after that and went into a lot of struggle and hardship in life. After a few years, doors open and I had jobs without medical examination, I don't know why, I stop going to the doctor as he said I am healed with my disease, the thing that they see in my chest x-ray was scar. I didn't believe them, I go on with my life and continue working until now. That part was the hardest part in my life. I thought there is no tomorrow for me. But then I just let life takes me and presently working and the best part is I am officially healed. I never stop on the bad things happened to me in my past. I use it as an inspiration to pursue my future cause I don't wanna be left in that situation and that conclude that my current life is not part of my past, it is a new beginning. Hope you guys inspired. :)

Your story is really inspiring and incredible. How can you become so strong with all those problem wrapping your life? I wish I could be strong like you were, even if I know it need time and effort to do that. I am fine with my life. I nearly don't have any problem, and it's a good point of view that we have to move our life on. Thank you Laniekins for your response and again thanks to join in mylot.

true that everyone of us has experience dark time in our past, but we need to move on and make this as a lesson. we need to make sure that our past makes us better in the future. this must make us better not bitter. i had a very complicated past. our father stayed out of the house most of the time. if he is at home its either they are fighting or he is drunk. most of the time he invites friends to drink at home. now that i am a father i dont drink, i am always here if my son needs me. i dont want my past get in the way of what i am now. i dont like my son to experience the kind of life i had before.

I read your sad story and it recalled me about my life in the past. Your past is nearly the same as what I felt. I was shy to tell you that my father was also drink addict. I was still very young and I presented much enough what my father would have done to his family hold. I knew I was still lucky to have a responsible mother who always there when I need love or beloved by. I learned from past and swore that I was not going to do the same as what father did to us. Thank you for your response and be happy forever.
