I don't know about the other guys on this site--but I feel less concerned about "yesterdays" than I do about "tomorrows"!
Sure, some stuff might've happened "in the past" which we wish would've gone different: like, say, you spilled some beef and barley soup on a guy's pants. And even though you said I'm sorry he made rude remarks resulting in several others laughing at you. And you felt real bad and begun to cry? Everyone has had this happen.
But why worry about such a painful "yesterday" when each and every "tomorrow" brings a fresh portion of opportunities we can accomplish so much with. Then our self-esteem feels so much more terrific. So why not just "relax" instead of worrying about when some kids started yelling you homo on the subway? Take it from me, they're the ones who are probably weird!
Plus, you never know...maybe that guy with the pants you spilled soup on (make believe his name was Kevin) was just in a bad mood that day! And tomorrow Kevin will be your friend and go, "Hey Matza, do you want to come over for a grilled cheese (or whatever my favorite sandwich is)?" Even if not maybe you will meet another new friend (pretend his name is Wallace Purdus). Or even a lady friend you can tell your ideas to instead of feeling lonesome and wipe your dork on?
Hey--why are you just sittin' there? Instead of listenin' to me you could be out there makin' it happen!
"It's up to you"!
