How much our past matters? I was going through photograph dumps, notes, scribbles. We change with time; Our priority, People, and the journey keep moving. I am barely in touch with my school and college friends. I am hardly in touch with folks from my first job.
At the same time, I have noticed our brain starts crafting patterns, likes, and aversions. It could be of a place, people, or what we eat, habits.
I have seen alcoholics, addicts turning sober in their latter half of life and reverse as well.
So how much does the past matter?
It depends on how we shape the journey of our life. Past learning has to guide for a positive future.
Our life is like a journey with a collection of experiences, relationships, and actions. We are humans; we cannot be perfect and logical as Spock. It is okay to move on.
