Our personal past and the cultural past of the country that we happent to live in is always a part of us. It's what has shaped us from our earliest formative years. So, no I don't think that we can escape our past.

I don't think that we can escape our past.I definately has an effect on our present state and somewhere or the other we do feel shadows of our past in our present lives as well!!

It depends on what it is this thing sometimes you can escape and live your life without thinking but if it is a big thing it will be always inside you but not on the surface all the time it will only shows in your weak days or when you are sad but it kept hidden all the time.

well, i donno much but people tend to forget things in due course, and the past is soon forgotten, however something always brings it up , leaving you in misery. However i believe that if you try to forgrt your past then it should do good to you, and in any case you must be brave and indifferent to accept it if it comes up again, i know its hard but you can laugh it up if you try....and learn from your past so that such things never happen again......we try to remain in the past and worry about the future, this is the thing that screws our present......

The past will remain with you you just have a start a new day with all the things of the past keeping them at back of your mind its a new day and until and unless you think of your past it wont affect you, if some people remind of you of your past try to ignore them or meet them as less as possible same with the places if si try not to go there... PAST will remain with you, you cant run from it you just need to learn how to handle it every1 has a past its good or bad you have to live with it....

It all depends on what past we had. Why do we require to escape our past? Human life is such that past is past and we move ahead for our future. If the past is bitter then we don't go to think about it, bcos it will affect our present as well as our future. If the past is good then we always remember it and it will inspire us in our work. So there is nothing like escaping from past.

I wish I could escape it but someone, somehow always brings it back up and you pay for it all over again. Or at least I have for the last 27 years. and I am only 42 now.
