Achieving self-improvement requires hard work, a strong desire to acknowledge where betterment is needed, and a willingness to put those intentions into motion. Encountering individuals who live for any opportunity to remind us of our flaws and past failures is discouraging. During those moments, we must remember that we ALL need improvement, even those casting our past into the room. The urge to lash back with a mistake they have made is very enticing; don’t be THAT person! DON’T give up your “present” and personal growth by stepping into their past. Keep your head up and continue to step forward; YOUR future isn’t behind you!
