The expression, "carrying the weight of our past" is mainly used to denote negative experiences. We don't complain about carrying the weight of joyous times. If anything, those memories lift us and make life easier. So, if these negatives memories "weigh us down," why not release them? The easiest way is to rewrite the script of the past through forgiveness and by asking The Divine to help us view the past from a Higher perspective.
