#Choose #Use: 2018-03-04

• The difficult parts of your history neither add to nor detract from your self, but they can be used to teach yourself to serve Virtue.
• Being victimized is a universal human experience that can be used to excuse victimizing your victimizers or to choose to live a better way.
• Your negative past is not something to be grateful for, but you can use your negative past to improve your present by understanding what not to do.
• Barriers, challenges, difficulties, hurdles, obstacles, trials, and tribulations can all be used for compassion and understanding or persecution and revenge.

• Suffering can teach you how not practicing virtue causes and increases suffering; thereby, teaching you to practice virtue especially when others did or do not.
