    the actual sad event.

    "You can always turn your tragedy into your triumph by analysing the past, learning a lesson from it and forgetting the actual sad event."

    Is this sentence correct if I do not have in mind some particular event, but only say this as a general piece of advice?

    Thanks.

    Re: the actual sad event.

    It's "analysing" by the way.
