We all have the power to change! If you have changed, if you know you are not the person you once were, I know you are probably frustrated at times because others may not see the changes.
Here is the thing,,,,,,
We can not take back who we were, nor can we remove the memories others have of us. But we can change. We do change. Nothing anybody says will change that fact! Given time we can prove ourselves, but the trouble is, and this is where patience comes in, we need to understand that human nature does not allow others to see us as we are; but only as we were…at least for a while. It takes time.
Just keep on keeping on! You know who you are and you know the past is just that…the past. Let others deal with their junk…and if your past is part of their present junk; then so be it! Let it go…let it go….. LOL
Be who you ARE not who you were..…and have faith that one day the world will see you for who you are!
