Sometimes, you just realise that there are moments that you cannot win.
No matter how hard you try to break away from the shackles of the past, inevitably the things said or done before will come back to haunt you one way or another.
Sometimes, you just can't win.
Thus, the lesson to be learned in such situations...
...is to pick the battles that we can win.
And leave the rest to the dusts of the memories past.
