WARNING: There is a big difference.
You may have heard the saying that:
Living in the past = depression
Living in the future = anxiety
Living in the present = peace
Well, it is VERY true for my life. I have been stuck both living in the past & future and both places can be miserable. In my health / faith journey, however, I have learned that there is a great difference between looking back and turning back.
I have had to look back on my past to study myself:
BUT--and this is the warning--TURNING back is entirely different. It's like doing a 180 and living in your past. It's living in the failure, the weakness, the temptation, the defeat. That will NOT motivate you to move forward. That WILL leave you depressed.
So, dear friend, know the difference. Don't turn back, and don't live in the future. Instead, learn how to peak at your past to study yourself and learn how to be mindful of the future to be a priority planner.
There is a great great difference.
