“Don’t let the past remind us of what we are not now.”
To do that, I’d have to forget what I remember of the past, or refrain from self-evaluation. But why allow regrets to ruin the rest of my life? Had I “played all my cards correctly'” who knows what I might have become, how healthy, wealthy, and powerful? Yet I’d have missed many of the lessons I have learned (however poorly.)
Yeah, It fits.
