You can let your past define you or you can move on from that into what God wants for you, for your life. Have you reconciled with your past? Forgiven yourself for past sins as now a believer in Christ?
"You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness." (Ephesians 4:22-24)
