If you had a chance to look directly in your past would you?

I mean not just the glimpses of things that we remember and things that are clouded because we have blocked them. Not how we remember in our own bias perspective, but a real look. An unbiased, straight forward look into your past, would you really want to?

Sankofa- either the word in the Akan language of Ghana that translates in English to "go back and take" (Sanko- go back, fa- take) or the Asante Adinkra symbol.

"Sankofa means that it is not taboo to go back and retrieve what you forgot. The primary principle of Sankofa is that we must return to our roots, our past in order to move forward in the future. As shown above, Sankofa is visually represented by a bird flying forward as he looks back and sometimes depicted with an egg, symbolic for the future, in his mouth."
I would believe yes it is ok- only if the the reason is for a better future
