We all have skeletons in our closets and default human nature generally tends to hang on to them even when we want to leave them behind us. The good news is that the specific elements in our nature that keep us hanging on to our skeletons are controllable.
We can change our behavior and outlook to naturally shift our tendency away from the past we want to leave behind and toward the future we want ahead.
