Never forget your past, no matter how ugly it appears to you.

Hello Everyone! The title of this article might sound little odd because it’s not something we hear often. Talking about past, we hear things like “Forget your past” , “Move on from your past” , “Stop looking at your past” . And some positive things like “Focus on your present” , “Be in the present“, “Work for tomorrow“.

So why do I say “Never forget your past” ? Hopefully, you’ll get the answer till end of this article.

Never Forget Your Past


As you know from the title , we are going to talk about the past. We all have experienced Good/bad moments in our past & it has also shaped us in what we are right now, right?

Sometimes, it is really hard to handle a bad experience from past. It takes almost everything to get over that incident & sometimes we might even end up being frustrated.

So we search for advice, tips, tricks, etc to get over past & to forget past. That’s alright but before doing that I need to tell you that “Don’t Forget Past”. Actually never forget it.

3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Forget Your Past?

why never forget past
  1. Past Has Your Mistakes : The reason why you want to forget your past is because it has something which you didn’t want to happen. And the one of the reason for it is You. Yes , you’ve done mistakes which resulted in something you didn’t want at all. That is why you should never try forget your past because that might also be like forgetting your own mistakesYou cannot correct your mistakes & improve if you decide to forget them in first place.
  2. Past Has Lessons For You : Past is the best teacher. Yes , our past teaches a lot. We all have experienced something in our past against our will. We all have did things which we regretted later. But those things can never be reversed or changed. That is why past has many lessons which tells us what we should not repeat & what we should do now.
  3. Past Is The Way To Future : If you decide to learn from your past mistakes & learn from all the past lessons then you surely have a bright future ahead. But if you decide to forget all the mistakes & not to learn from them then it will be hard to get a future you want. Unless you make mistakes, fail at things and disappoint yourself, you can’t understand the importance of working hard and believing yourself.
