You can't remake yourself whenever you wish. You can't completely discard older versions of yourself like incremental software upgrades. It doesn't work like that. You can't learn from that. You need to be able to continually progress while maintaining a part of who you were.

I think there's a beauty in remembering the clothes we used to wear. The books we used to read. The people we used to care for—and hurt. When you stop remembering, you stop moving.
