I'm convinced that sensory triggers are of the devil. LOL It's crazy how things I haven't thought about in years become so prevalent by certain sights, smells and different environments. Unfortunately, this past week I've been having this problem. Flashbacks can be either good or bad. In my situation it's bad because it's causing me to be selfish. I'm trying not to indulge in matters of the past. The more I spend time alone to figure this out I realized, the person that I see myself as in the future isn't the same person from my past. I'm DYNAMIC! Those feelings are exactly what I described them as, the past. I'm a different person today then I will be tomorrow. If you happen to also be struggling with this remember we're meant to evolve, there is a better you to come and looking back will only set you back.
+Plus, flash forwards are so much better then flashbacks; you have the opportunity to change your future; but the past will forever be the same. :p
