Learn To Accept and Forgive Your Past
The best way to escape from the past is not to avoid or forget it, but to accept and forgive it.
One of the foremost approaches to learning in life is to make new decisions based off of previous experiences. It starts when we are young, many of us may have tried to draw near or even touch a hot stove not knowing that we would get burned, and then from that experience learn to stay away from touching hot burning stoves with no protection. This is an example of how we use our past mistakes to determine what decisions to make in our future. It is imperative that we draw from our experiences so that we won't get burned again.

It is important that we remember our past, the good times and the bad, but it is crucial for us not to live in the past. As many of you may already know, your past is your past for a reason. Though it will be influential in the way you presently live and ultimately your future, do not let your past hold you back from living your life as you want to live it, as long as you want to make positive forward strides towards your future. You must accept your past, the things you went through, mistakes you might have committed, and forgive those who have done you wrong. After you accept those things you must move on from them, using those life experiences as a stepping stone to progress in life. Failure to move on from your past will cause it to be dead weight in your life, severely slowing down your forward progress.

Overcoming Resentment Against Others
Strength of character means the ability to overcome resentment against others, to hide hurt feelings, and to forgive quickly. Lawrence G. Lovasik
Those who are strong don't make it their mission to hurt others, or to seek out to find who may hurt them. Those who are strong realize that there are things in life that you simply can't control, including the fact that there will be people in your life that will hurt you, and that there will also always be people in your life that will disappoint you.

Inspirational Quote By Mother Teresa
People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway. If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway. What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway. Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway. In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
It seems as though the more we know, and the more we find ourselves in tune with life, the crazier that the world and the people in it actually seem. Even through this, we have to be willing to love. It takes courage and faith to continue to believe in people when they have shown you every reason in the world not to.
