Looking back into your past can evoke many painful and sorrowful moments. It is usually advice that you shouldn't linger in your past. Forget about what happened and move forward! But your past experience is always preparation to face tomorrow's challenges. The fact thatvyou've came through the past is a reminder that there is still hope. It serves as a mark of God's power and love. Therefore you must learn to learn from your circumstances. Learning from your past and regretting it is two different things. No, I am not encouraging you to keeping trying to paint a better picture of your past...because you can't.
