The Past

“Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.”

Who would have known that re-watching a classic Disney movie we’ve both seen so many times would have such poignancy even today. I’m not usually at a loss for words, but I think that these simple words speak for themselves.

Adult Simba: I know what I have to do. But going back will mean facing my past. I’ve been running from it for so long.

Adult Simba: Oww. Jeez… What was that for?

Rafiki: It doesn’t matter, it’s in the past.

Adult Simba: Yeah, but it still hurts.

Rafiki: Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.
