Your past has not influenced you. Your past does not exist. Your past has never existed. What you have that is real is the present moment. The present moment is all that we ever have that is real. We create our experiences and life by the thoughts that we have in the moment, in the now. What is important is what you are choosing to think and believe and even say in the present moment. You do choose your thoughts even if you think that you do not. You are responsible for your thoughts even if you think that you are not. What you think and say is creating and forming all of your experiences. Notice what you are thinking now. You can transform your experience and life by choosing to have positive rather than negative thoughts and beliefs.
