Living in the Past/Growing up
Reading the paper today I realized, there are many out there living in the past. How long can one continue to live in the past before the present and future give them a huge dose of reality? I have met a few people living in their glory days. The time where everything was perfect. They felt like the ‘Big Man’ on campus. Is this because they are afraid of stepping out of their comfort zone? What makes one so afraid to move on with their lives? Take that next step and become an adult. Growing up is never really easy. Some days you feel like the world is out to get you. Others you feel like you hit rock bottom. Then you have those reality check moments where you think, “Wow, this is growing up. I am becoming an adult.” All of this is part of growing up. Never forgetting about the past but learning from it. Taking that wisdom with you in your life and becoming a new and improved you. We cannot worry about the past and think, “What If?” Gotta keep moving on and do our best living in the present, looking towards the future. Reminiscing in the past is cool sometimes, but living it is not so cool or healthy for that matter.
