Nostalgia is unavoidable in life. We can press forward and become better people through positive and negative experiences, but all in all…nostalgia is an unavoidable trap.
I find it difficult not to dwell on the past. Past hurts. Past mistakes. People I’ve wronged. Lives I’ve affected. I totally realize it’s a cyclical trap that leads to self-loathing, and the subsequent addictions that always want to come back around, but at times I find it unavoidable.
I know God frees us from all we’ve done, are doing, and will do. I know that grace covers all, and mercy abounds. But man…sometimes it’s hard to accept that, and stare life in the face with “Jesus Glasses” on. Sometimes I’m just human.
And that’s okay.
