Number 30 on the list of Positive Guidelines is to “Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present”. There comes a time when you have to make the choice to weed out all the negativity that stems from your past. I’ve learned that sometimes the people who aren’t supposed to let you down will, and that walking away from a situation doesn’t mean you are giving up, but rather accepting that some things are not meant to be. Take the lessons learned and move on. It is not selfish to try and live a happy life. Always move forward, not backwards.
