We have all experienced that annoying unthinkable word called pain. We have all wept, and we all perfectly know what sadness means. We've practically experienced being crushed bit by bit. We've been humiliated. But we survived.
And that was the past. That was finished. It's all gone, it's far far away. The days of crying yourself to sleep are gone. The days of being humiliated and taken over have disappeared. You've already visited that country. Right now, you're in the present.
How to Train your Dragon's book author, Cressida Cowell agrees. Back in the dark times, dragons and vikings used to be at war. But now they're at peace. Would you even believe that vikings are on the backs of dragons?!
The past seems like a bajillion years ago from now. Right now, you're better. You've grew. You've learned. And that is what the past teaches us. Without the painful hurtful past, would you ever see this beautiful present? Would you ever have a five star hotel if you didn't start with a small apartment? Would you ever be your class valedictorian if you didn't spend those four years of studying?
The past is another country. They do things differently there.
