There are two major vantage points to the way we view ourselves; historical and futuristic.
For those with checkered pasts like my own, the historical viewpoint is damaging. They focus on what they have done and those things which have been done unto them and use these things as a looking glass to define self. Their identities become rooted in hurt and failure.
The futuristic view does not forget the past but it does not focus on it either.
Rather, their minds become fixed on what God is accomplishing in and through them versus focusing on where they have failed. They do not focus on limitations based on past events but limitless possibilities based on God’s promise through His word.
What’s your viewpoint?
