: Can anyone help me? I'm in need of opinions of what this quote means. "You can't deal with your future until you know your past"

There is another saying "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" (or different versions of this). I think your quote is making the same point... maybe. I say maybe because your quote sounds like a pop psychology saying, whereas "Those who cannot remember..." is usually taken to be about history. Pamela
