Aren't you glad that you are past your mistakes? Oh you, and I, will certainly make more mistakes but hopefully we are long past who we used to be.
Character grows from doing the right things. Wisdom grows from learning from your mistakes. Whoever we once were, it's our job to grow beyond that into someone better.
Grow. Keep growing. Set and work on goals that push you onward.
Grow so much that who you used to be scares you.
Because who you are becoming is so much better, and you just barely escaped what was.
