What you call the past is actually a made up story created out of a relatively small collection of remembered tidbits of life as you interpreted it. Your version of the truth is the result of your unique filter. It’s not the absolute truth and you are not permanently stuck with it. At any time, you’re free to change your story by drawing on your expanded understanding and deeper wisdom. It would be just as true as the one you’ve been telling.
And feel a whole lot better.
