The past should be left in the past or it can steal your future. Live life for what tomorrow can bring and not what yesterday has taken away. Every day is a gift.
As the unique, most precious, and most beautiful of almost any organism that lives, every single one us deserves to live our lives as we want to, and not how anyone else wants us to. Some people let others live their lives for them, and let the influence of others persuade them to be someone who they arent at their deepest levels.
