In order to move forward in the present and to have a good future, we must not let the past dictate it. Most times, the past gets in our way and holds us back to becoming the person we are supposed to be.

In order to change our future, we must get rid of negative things that are in our mind, from the past. In the past, when I was using drugs, I knew I wanted to change, but it was hard for me to do that because I was always hanging with so-called friends.

I knew I wanted to change! As a result of that thinking, I went to a drug program to get myself together. Now that I am drug free these same so-called friends, till this day, will still offer me drugs. That’s why I always surround myself with good people and always keep a positive mind. My present and my future are very, very important to me.

It is also important that we as a people always remember that the past is in the past, and it’s up to us to have the best present and future we can make!
