In Netflix’s film, The Last Letter From Your Lover, Felicity Jone’s character shares her thoughts saying:
The past can be intoxicating.
It can draw you in,
create the illusion that things were better, you were happier
or experiences were richer back then.
It can also debilitate you
leaving you stuck in your memories of pain, heartbreak, and disappointment,
holding you back from even attempting another shot at happiness.
They say if we don’t learn from past mistakes,
we’re bound to repeat them.
But can we also learn to let go of the past,
learn to forge ahead keeping the knowledge close
but not letting it overtake our ability to try again, to feel again?
