If you want to, you can change. Don't let the past be an obstacle for you in making decisions in your life, in changing the way you are. You have the power, not that which you were or did even five minutes ago.
“You’re under no obligation
to be the same person
you were five minutes ago.”
No one can force you
to continue being the person
you were yesterday,
not even the person you woke up as.
You are the one who gets to decide
who you are and who you will be.
You are the one who has control
over what you do and what you don't do,
over the way you act, over your next steps.
No matter the past,
its influence and weight...
when it comes down to it,
that's nothing if you don't want it to be it.
That desired change,
those necessary changes,
those new ways of facing life
could be from now on,
if you want it.
