Dwelling on the past and blaming the past doesn’t get us anywhere.

It’s a ball and chain.

It keeps us stuck in the same place.

We try to move forward but struggle because the weight is heavy.

We waste energy dragging it with us.

We’re stuck until we break free.

We have to break free so we can move on and move forward.

We have to break free so we can move freely toward a better life and a better future.

It takes courage and strength to break free.

I’m sick of being a prisoner.

I’m ready to be free.

I’m setting myself free.
