If you can’t let go . . .
If you can’t let go of the past, it is doomed to haunt you.
– Jiminy Cricket ABC’s Once Upon a Time
Another Once Upon a Time quote:
On her quest for redemption, the Evil Queen seeks advice from Jiminy Cricket who tells her that unless she lets go of her past, she will never be able to move forward with life. This is sound advice for us all. We cannot hold on to the hurts and pains and mistakes of the past. We must acknowledge those times, but pick ourselves up and try again. Otherwise, we will be living in regret, self-pity, anger, or self-loathing.
