Honestly, I think it can be left behind, at least mentally you can forget it more and more. For example, I think when we deal with bad things in our past, they tend to haunt us for a while. But, there are times where you just accept it and move on as best you can. Eventually the past tends to be forgotten, good and bad. I think time heals all wounds, and honestly that's the best way I can put it. There is still a chance for hurt to come from the past, but eventually you will start to worry less and less about the past as you get older and mature. That's how I feel anyway.

Yes, it is possible to leave the past behind. But it requires deliberate action to leave it. Our mind is tuned to reflect on the past. Especially the things that went very good or too bad. So, we are supposed to train our brains to deliberately get rid of the past memories that will not help build the future. Those destructive memories of the past should be kept out of the head with long and deliberate practice of focusing on the future. But we should obviously derive lessons from the past and let it go and use the knowledge to forge a better future.

You can never leave the past behind but you can start living with it. I think it's a big lie in our community that we can forget the past and move on. We all are in the present but it's our minds who become out of control and get disconnected from the present and go to the past. I know it's hard to survive with the past but all in all, we need to live. Just accept the truth and start living with it
