Stung by the Past

Being stung by the past, is pretty much the worst feeling ever.  There are all these idioms about how “tomorrow is a new start,” “time will dilute everything,” but the truth is the composition of who you are today is developed from your past.  Your past will always be there.  Memories and reverberations from the past will continue to bring you feelings of warm sunshine or haunt you like an ever-present demon.  Ultimately, whether life goes on depends on your will to not feed and fatten your hauntings with your undivided attention.
