A person should try to not live in the past since it is the past and move on to the future since that is where the hope and life is. I spent my tour in the service ( Marines & Navy ) and that is ancient history , times gone forever , never to return. Then spent 27 years at war here in the states with the Sheriff's Office , that is also ancient history and water over the dam.
If I had something from my past that would be worrying me so bad as to lock myself up every night then life would be wasted. I will go with the open windows ( Not in the Summer ...to dam hot) no security system except for myself and YES , Locked doors since the Wife insists on them , for the little they are worth. ( A lock and the rest only keeps the honest person out )
You have to move forward looking forward one day at a time or always remain a slave to the past and looking over your shoulder.
