Some of our actions have caused problems, some have been helpful. The memories of our harmful past actions keep us from being peaceful today. We could see these things in the light of wisdom and realize that we are strong enough to take responsibility for these mistakes of the past. We can see them for what they were: errors. These errors are mistakes which can be corrected and the first thing we do to correct them is admit our part in the problem. we do not have to blame someone else to make ourselves feel better. We simply own up to our behavior and let others take care of their own. We are responsible for our actions…our actions in the past and our actions today. Rather than feel trapped, always doomed to repeat the same mistakes, we know that we can change the patterns of the past.
