Think about what standards mean for your life and how they have molded you into the person you are. Standards do not have to be thought of as a negative concept but rather a set of guidelines you would like to follow in your life.

Looking forward means learning from the past to carve out a brighter future. A new you does not mean leaving the old you behind and forgetting where you have been. Starting fresh takes evaluation of our past successes and mess ups, and creates a stronger, more stable future.
