Do you want to create a better future than your past? How do you do that?
many people do you know that are still reliving their high school
days? They are constantly remembering how things were during their
senior year in high school, and how wonderful it was. Bet you anything,

until the pain subsides and we can move along, however you need to put
it behind you as soon as possible and move ahead. This doesn’t mean you
will never think about it again, you will. It isn’t about denial, it is

so-called negative events from your past, and unless you want to
reinforce those feelings and continue to experience the same in the
future, begin to think about how you want your future to unfold,now is
