It is not as much about who you used to be, as it is about who you choose to be. Sanhita Baruah
We all make mistakes, we are imperfect human beings but putting ourselves down for everything that we did wrong won’t help us to become better. Accepting the mistakes and trying to be different or act differently are the things that will make us better. The past is in the past, what we do today is more important than what we used to do.

Those who seek a better life must first become a better person. Jim Rohn
A better life means a better you. You cannot have one without the other. Sure, there are people who have certain things that you want that are not better than you. But at what cost? Are they truly happy and content with their lives or it’s just an image? A better life should always mean a better you if you truly want to enjoy your life.
