you cannot cover your past, nor should you want to. we all do shiesty things, like the picture here of some classy college-style drinking on the beach in greece, but those things have made us into the glorious people of today. without these prior life events we would not be at this very point in life, and that would be tragic. do not regret your past, for all that you have done has culminated into the precious you of this moment. without just one tiny event, everything would be different. we are loved by the creator completely, flaws and mistakes and bad decisions and all. it’s all part of the human experience, and it’s all part of us. revel in it, enjoy it, learn from it. but do not cover it.
