When I saw this quote from Joe Mantegna, I thought about difficulties in my past as well as many others I know. I like to turn negatives into positives and acknowledge, but not dwell on unpleasant memories and experiences.

This quote from Joe Mantegna states that concept more succinctly: “Scars remind us where we’ve been–they don’t have to dictate where we are going.”
