It’s really hard sometimes to get past the things that have hurt us. We tend to get so caught up in them that we can’t even see what is happening in the here and now; and what’s worse, we can’t find hope in the future.
So what do you want to do with your future? What do you really want to do? Go to college? Study abroad? Maybe you just want to set short term goals like making the volleyball team or getting on the honor roll. It really doesn’t matter what your goals are, the important thing is to set them. Keep pushing yourself forward. Stay away from the people that drag you down, even if that means sticking with family for now. God will send the right friends at the right time.
Don’t get so stuck on your past that you miss what’s happening around you. Let it go. Look ahead to all the exciting things you could do with your life. I’ve said it before; there is a reason God didn’t put eyes in the back of our head.
