“What’s behind me doesn’t matter” interesting quote I saw on a movie when I was young (never you mind when that was) about a race car driver I think. He was talking about cars he passed as he ripped off the rear view mirror, but if we think about it, it fits life.We should not spend time worrying about what’s behind us, or ‘in the past’ because we cannot change it. We learn from our past and continually strive to improve and move forward. If we don’t, we are likely to live miserable ‘I should have’ lives in which all we can do is constantly think about how we should have or could have done something different or better.
Remembering past parts of our lives is normal and even healthy (no I’m by no means one of those head doctors) I think, it should help us learn about ourselves and how we have changed.
Dwelling (no not the place you live) on the past cannot be healthy, it tends to hold us back and keeps us from moving forward to get better and stronger. By all means, remember the past, relish the memories of childhood and youth, all the fun things, as well as the fun things that you did and happened. Then, look forward to where you are now and see how much you have grown, and how the things in the past (behind you) don’t really matter in the long run. Another quote I saw or heard in a movie a long time ago “son, remember this, God doesn’t care who you were, he cares about who you are now”.
See? “What’s behind me, doesn’t matter”
