We look backwards rummaging through our past examining our own mistakes, failures, and losses and what we could’ve done to correct those that which cannot be changed. We yearn for the truth about our own existence where pain, suffering, loss, and even death is inevitable, but amidst those darkest moments, we rise above those conditions and grow beyond them.
