The Devil Left His Bags (An Advice We Need To Hear)

The past is over. It’s gone. No one can change it, redo it or replace it. But it is possible to learn from it, prosper over it, and thrive through it. This means that even though the past is no longer “real,” our memories and experiences from them are genuine and if these memories are negative in nature,  they continue to haunt us for a very a long time.  The poem below is extremely profound in nature and inspires us to let go of the past with all its baggage, so that we can live a happy, prosperous and beautiful life.
