you-are-not-your-pastYou are not how you were described in your high school reports.

You are not the things that your parents said about you when they were angry.

You don’t have to be defined by your past relationship mistakes.

You are not the same person that you were when you were fired from your first job.

You’ve grown since then.

You are stronger and more resilient.

You are wiser and able to make better decisions.

You may be slightly cracked, but you’re not broken.

So stop defining yourself by the past.

Forgive yourself.

Forgive those who have hurt you.

Ask for forgiveness when necessary.

And move into the exciting future that God has planned for you.
