what do you say to friends/family who insist on reminding you of all your past mistakes..
though you have turned your life around many years ago and are not that person any longer? This also applies to an ex wife or girlfriend - or husband/boyfriend for the ladies
The past is gone and can not be changed. The future is what i am making now. Everyone makes mistakes, some just hide them better than others.
First of all I would like to say be sure of yourself,
They have a right to voice their opinion, but have aright to reject them.
Be clear in your communication, nothing wrong in admitting your mistakes but be keep doing what you have started out to do
Your persistence will speak for itself.
They will eventually bow out if your action speak louder than your words!!
Have a few hubs on similar lines may help to check them out!

I've had countless "friends" and family members who have done this...the first few times I let them know that I know I made those mistakes, I've learned from them, and I've moved on and tried to use those lessons to make myself a better person. If they insist on rubbing my face in it, I politely request that they not talk to me at all if that's all they can talk about. The requests get less polite if they still insist on it. Life is too short to let anyone try to drag you back into old ruts.
I'd simply ask, "well how many misyakes have u made?" I'd also say, "look in the mirror."
Past is memory..
Today is reality...
Tomorrow is mistery....
so i will face the reality ..i will do the best for today.
important is that you don't do the same mistake again..
coz if you fall in the same hole i think is not a mistake anymore but fool..

Do you ever choose to spend time with on-line "friends & family", while shunning your real people?It seems as if the Internet addiction fullfills the need of many lonely people. Our real friends and families know us, our imperfections and idiosyncracies. Our on-line lifestyle seems so...

Have you forgiven your friends/family for any mistake on their part?I always feel (and have experienced it too) that forgiving your friends/family for wrong-doing leaves them to regret their folly and prevent them from repeating it. Especially when it is your enemy that you forgive, they are put to...

How do you deal with people who argue and insist they are right when you know they are wrong?Why do some people argue even if it is obvious they are wrong? I once had someone argue with me that A.D. in dates means "after death" rather than a Latin phrase meaning "in the year of our...

Recently, a friend of mine tried fixing me up on a date with a woman who she claimed was 'perfect for you, Jon!' Admittedly, we were very clearly attracted to each other and got along great. We had a couple of drinks together and it was a good time. Unfortunately, there must've been a truth serum...
