Are you being a prisoner of your past. Or a architect of your future. ~ Be honest with yourself.
More of the former than the latter, sad to say. Experiences of the past seem to direct a lot of what I do or do not do today. As to the future, all too many events come at me without my say so for me to plan around them. So, as an architect of the future, I suppose I'm still in the sod-house era if not before.
It is easy to settle into bad habits. It is hard to change.The way to change unhealthy habits is to replace them with new behavior which is more useful, healthier, and which makes you feel better about yourself. Big changes in this area will give you
If you are depressed you are living in the past.
If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are living in the present u are at peace.
In 'the Secret' film, the future is visualized but not at the cost of the present.
Depression drains your energy, hope, and drive, making it difficult to do what you need to feel better. But while overcoming depression isn’t quick or easy, it’s far from impossible. You can’t beat it through sheer willpower, but you do have some con

Lao was a chinese philospher. He was most well known for his association in Taoism and is seen as very close to a god by some so I really don't think he was talking to much about depression or this subject but I have read some of his work.
To be honest, I was very much a prisoner of my past until a few months ago, I allowed my past friends to dictate my life, and even when I cut these so-called friends out of my life, I still felt myself being very angry with them. They were gone and yet the anger I felt was still ruling over my life.
Finally, I was able to move on and decide that I carry the ability to make my life whatever I choose to make of it. It's really quite liberating.
Starting today, do yourself a huge favor by not allowing your past to dictate your present or future. Appreciate yourself as the unique individual you are and believe in your capabilities to accomplish anything you dare to dream of. And here’s the fu
I am not a prisoner of my past.I treat my past as a learning experience.We need our past to go on with life.My past was never near perfect but I am thankful I experienced them because I wouldn't have any comparison basis on how to live my life had I not had my past.
Well said It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but w
