It is easy to dwell on the past, especially when the past is filled with heartache. However, “until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex, but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them." (Iyanla Vanzant)
During this time of transition from summer to fall it is important that we all are making peace with our past and moving forward with our lives. After all, it is a brand new season. I encourage you to embrace it. Don't allow people or situations of your past to hold you back; just as summer has ended their season has ended, too.
