"And there’s no such thing as what might’ve
Been, that’s a waste of time; drive you outta your mind"

Man oh man does that gorgeous man know what he is talking about or what?!

There is no reason to dwell on the past. What has happened has happened for a reason. You may not know that reason but God does. He has a reason for everything. And trust me from person experience and I'm sure you can all agree it really does drive you crazy when you think about all the "what if's". Like "What if I had said this?", "What if I had gone there?", "What if I had been nicer?". There is no point in the "what if's" because until we have a time machine invented (which I find to be highly unlikely it will be soon) we can't change the past. We can't change the things we've said or done. I mean even Timon and Pumba knew this. Don't you remember the "You gotta put your past behind you." quotation. It's something they've been trying to teach us from an early age and yet even elderly people sometimes think of the "what if's?". We just need to remember to trust in God that he will lead us where we need to be and not to worry about what has happened in our past. He forgives us for our mistakes but we also must forgive ourselves.
