Easier to deal with what you know than letting go
Because the past is what places us here, now where and who we are. On the other hand there can be a sort of security in the misery of what we know. To let go of that is to cease to blame others for your inner pain.

the Huney in Hun
it's so clear we are conditioned by our past to believe and to act in certain ways. As a therapist it's so very clear that our narratives follow a line and that we each derive our filters, our ways of perceiving from the experiences that shape us, as clearly as clay is shaped at the hand of the potter, at that wheel, that wheal. We are injured in the process. We are poked and prodded and we develop holes. Empathy, compassion, new role models, are ways of counteracting the hatred that builds in some people, creating perceptions that are so often distorted towards others. This little piece from a truly magic movie is so great at pointing this out.

To quote Rebe Nachman we should start fresh all the time the depression and despair is when we delve too much into our past.

Piercing the right spot, the surgery of true love.
First because of the roots we have grown over time severing them can cause a setback or even death/loss/comfort zone depending on how, next, fear of change as they say---nobody is comfortable with change, the faith to embrace change and fear of the unknown as they also say-- better the devil you know than the angel you have no idea of, all the same we need to have faith in what God has said through his word about us-- that it eventually will come to pass and therefore TRUST Him, pray make it possible to TRUST and cry under his shadow in our helplessness. Satan loves to scare until you hit his soft spot and he melts. The show to me describes how self depicts itself in the event of good change or a difference as opposed to selfish change. The bible teaches us that "everything works for good to those who TRUST in Him" NB: EVERYTHING.

because worrying, past, present, and future is instinctive
Worrying about the past is easy and instinctive, because it is often difficult to get over certain events or forgive certain people. It may not always be post-traumatic stress, but perseveration.
Since worrying is instinctive regarding the past, present, and future, we strive to make sure we have that worrying instinct in order to be safe. It''s essentially descended down either from ancestors or parents, which has not yet evolved away from our thinking, even though things today are typically safer.

things are ingrained
