We all have a past. We have all journeyed to the place we are currently at. Your path has made you who you are. It has made you strong. It has changed who you are.
That’s why being judged on your past is unnecessary. It is completely unfair for someone to want to remember you as who you were and not accept who you are. We have all made mistakes. If we have made steps to learn and grow from our mistakes, that’s what matters. What matters is that you keep striving to become the best version of you. Leave all the bullshit in the past.
