“Freedom from the past is only accomplished by your own doing. You and you alone have the choice and ability to either torture yourself for being human or forgive yourself for your humanity. This is when you will be able to live in the present moment where life exists. Forgiveness of yourself is necessary if you plan to have peace, serenity, and any form of genuine happiness. Allow yourself to escape the pain of the past and move along your course to tranquility and joyous living. It is quite senseless to continue to permit the past, which cannot be changed, to dictate your present state of living. If you feel the need to experience guilt, remorse, and regret, that’s fine; however, experience it once or twice, learn the lesson intended, and move on. There is no productivity in feeling this pain 147,000 times over a 30-year period.”
Richard A. Singer, in “Your Daily Walk With the Great Minds”
