I don't claim to be an expert, but what I do have is life experiences! Let me be the first to tell you that you are not who or what you have done in the past. Now, throughout your life as you are "growing", learning about yourself, and just overall being a better you. There will be, let's call them "critics" whom will continue to shadow you with negativity. They may run into mutual friends and you are brought up in a conversation. Your mutual friend may hear things like : "Oh, they're not who you think they are." OR "Did you hear what they did back then". I mean we have heard it all. Maybe even participated in it. The fact of the matter is. You are on a better path!
You are being a better you all around. Everyday you try hard to wake up and be positive. They probably need help getting to where you are. We all know they have to get there on your own. We can always offer advice, but it they have to come to it on their own. So in sum...you are NOT your past. You are growing in to something great! You already are great! You are only getting better! Don't allow a "shadow" to be cast on you!
