Looking back will just gave a repent to our mistakes, besides looking back we should correct our future through the mistakes we have done in our past and should live in present because it is a gift to us that's why it is called a present so we should live it correctly by not looking in past and future.

Looking back is to learn from my mistakes and be a better now in my present and in the future. Experiences always taught us how to fight and face challenges in life, but not learning from it is your biggest mistake in life.

I don't believe in talking and showing off.

I just believe in to do the things and work.

But at this place, a criteria is going on that is to show himself or herself. And it's also a correct away when we see from one side.

So should start to speak.

Just do hard work and there are no shortcuts for doing hard works.

A learned man once said 'dead people receive more flowers than a living one', giving importance to what is done and can't be changed is a futile aspect of life, instead we should learn from it and try not to repeat it.

Looking back and regretting is a futile task.

Instead of looking and thinking that I should have done this or that thing in a different manner, I would analyze the situation, my response to the situation and learn from that. If a mistake is done, it can't be reversed so any point regretting it. Rather I'll learn from it and make sure never to repeat it.

Moreover, I think that mistakes and failures are not the ends, rather they are stepping stones towards success.

And the thing is that when I look back, I am fully satisfied with whatever right or wrong things I did in my past because this past has made me what I am today.
