By Emily NusbaumAssociated PressWhen I was in elementary school, my teacher would make us take pictures of each other and post them on the bulletin board.
We’d post them in our grade books and they’d look up in class and we’d ask, “Who’s that person?”
And then my teacher said, “You don’t have to worry about that now.
They’ll be gone from the school in the morning.”
And that was it.
That was my first lesson in how much you can control what your teacher sees in your life.
The way I see it is, if you don’t feel like you can tell someone else what’s going on in your world, then you can’t control your own life.
I don’t think you should judge your past behavior.
But if you know that you’re not in control of your past, then the best thing you can do is accept your past and move on.
That’s the way I’ve learned to live my life.
