By Soren Kierkegaard
This quote might sound a bit depressing, but it might also signify something positive.
“Life can only be understood backwards” means that there is no knowing what you should do, and there is no such thing as destiny. You are the author of your life, you can write whatever you want.
“it must be lived forwards” means that you have to keep living, and you shouldn’t waste your time regretting the past. It has already taken place and you can never change it. What you can change is your future, by turning your regret into a valuable experience which had taught you a lesson of life.
Together, I believe what the quote suggests is ;
you should always look toward the future, because you are responsible for your own life, you have the power to change your destiny, and you are the only one who can give meaning to your life.
I’ll be away from my blog for several days, as I’m going on a trip with my family. I’m really excited! See you soon!
