"Ah, yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or...learn from it." - Rafiki from The Lion KingWe all have something in our past that has hurt us emotionally, mentally, or even physically. Regardless if it's something recent or a long time ago, we can still learn from it. If you read one of my very first posts, "The Beginning - Getting Serious", you would know I ran for many years from something that hurt me in the past, but I eventually quit running and dealt with the issue. Even though it was difficult to deal with, I got through it and was able to take away a very important lesson; and that is running from what is hurting you will not make it better or go away. The best thing to do is face the difficulty, move forward, and make your life better!
