when you understand that what you're telling is a story. it isn't happening anymore. "When you realize the story you're telling is just words, when you can crumble it up and throw your past in the trashcan, then we'll figure out who you're going to be."
There is no mercy in your mind, so don't let it consume you. Consummation will cause you to crash. Just take a look back and enjoy things as they were. Because what it was, is exactly that. At the end of the road it's all just the dirt you stepped on to get to where you are now. People come and go. Some people leave a big impact and some disappear in passing. So take this from me. What has happened dosen't need to cause what you do. What you do, defines who you are, not who you were. Who you were is a shadow cast aside. Don't let your past define you because there is always be room for change. And Change is constant.
