writer's block: are you living in the past?

I don't get it...
People say we should not live in the past, that we should "forget it", "let it go", "move on".... you all know what I'm taking about, 'cause we've heard all those words a million times... but why?... why should we erase the past when it is in deed that which made us who we are today?
I don't see how that can be the solution for break-ups, losing a loved one, getting fired, or embarrassing moments like falling in front of the entire school when we were at high school....

I don't get it...
If I choose to forget my mistakes from the past... I would also forget what I learned from them, and there for.. fall into those traps again.
If I choose to let go of those things from the past that once made me smile, made me angry or made me cry... it would mean letting go of my feelings... I could become a cold hearted bitch for all I know... a person that hasn't experienced any emotions is not a human at all, it would dehumanize us.
If I choose to move on... regardless of what I've been through... it would mean to delete all my memories... it would mean to stop remembering things at all... we would all become lost and amnesiac.

I don't get it...
Why should we forget the past? ..it doesn't make sense...
Why do we even call it that?... why call it past when it is still very present?...always present actually...

I've decided I can't erase the past because it is a part of me...
Yes, I can live in the present, NO I can't live in the future because the future will never be a part of me since it will always be ahead and imaginary... but the past... the past made me who I am today..

I'm sorry, I can't let go of the past... I can't get rid of most of what constitutes me.

#this is probably just an excuse of the fact that I can't get over him

I'm here...


I may be a mess, an emotional mess..most of the time...
but when a dear friend needs me... I'm there,
I'll always be there...
