Homework Help: Grade 12 English

Could you please review for me. Thank you

The past has a hold on me in many ways. Thinking back on my childhood, I have made numerous mistakes. Looking back at what I have done incorrectly, I could learn from those mistakes and make better choices. When I think about the past, I get distracted, which holds me back in achieving my goals. I should not stress out because I can’t do anything to change what has happened. Just understanding what has happened in my life, I am able to learn from my experience and make new meanings. I have to remember that what ever was done in the past has no power over my future.

The past can be more uncertain than the future because holding onto your past could haunt your present life in ways you act and behave. Thoughts, fears, hurts, and bad memories can prevent you from being able to go forward in your life. Contemplating about the bad memories and experiences will only eat away at us. If we free ourselves from past experiences, we will have the potential to live our life. We can’t change what happened in the past, we could just come to terms with it and understand how we have developed.

The potential future is more interesting because you never know what our future holds, but we know who holds our future. We can shape our destiny, even though we do not have much control over our future. Life is what we make of it. We must lift ourselves up and out of negativity and focus on using our energies to redirect our lives. I now know that we all have the power to shape a positive future for ourselves. We can create the future by our actions, choices, and decisions. The future is in our own hands.
