“So we beat on boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m too much obsessing over this quote after watching The Great Gatsby earlier today. I love the movie. (Not only because Callan McAuliffe plays young Gatsby) ;D
This quote pretty much explains what I’m going through right now. It’s about struggling to let go of the past and move on, but at the same time, remembering how the past has affected you so much. I’ve been thinking of my junior year in high school, how stressful things can be, and I’m still afraid that it might happen to me again (being afraid of the past which is why I want to move on).
I hope this gives you inspiration, that it’s okay to be afraid, it’s okay to struggle, because we are only human. We just have to learn to move on.
