We often we spend too much time analyzing the past in order to understand how we arrived where and who we are today. Often that leads to blame, which leads to anger, and self-pity.

If we have gotten into a hole this only digs it deeper. A more productive use of time and energy would be to find the light and start climbing out.

If a football player fumbles the ball does he sit down and kvetch or does he try to recover the ball and keep gaining yardage?

 “If we open a quarrel between the past and the present, we will find that we have lost the future.” – Winston Churchill

“Agony is but an instinct, the indulgence of agony is a blunder of a lifetime.” – Benjamin Disraeli
