You can very well transform

Many of us are not capable of releasing the past, of releasing the suffering of the past. We want to cling to our own suffering. By living deeply in the present moment we can understand the past better and we can prepare for a better future. You can use your life in a very useful and intelligent way. You can very well transform that negative energy into a positive energy that empowers you and makes life meaningful. ~Thich Nhat Hanh
