Regret


Regret is like living your life always asking “what if?” What if I never met you? What if never had children? What if I said no instead of yes? Who cares now? I have nothing to regret. Every action & reaction I have made was made by my choice. I chose to stay in abusive relationships long enough to choose to get out of them. I chose to abuse myself long enough to choose not to anymore.

I’m not dead yet. I survived it so far. So I guess the choices I made, albeit not always legal or moral, have shaped me into the woman I am now.

Pain is so necessary. I believe if you never feel the pain of losing someone or something you love you will never learn who you are & what you really need & want. Just because it hurts doesn’t mean it wasn’t worth my time & emotional investment in it. Something better always comes out in the end. And it has. 🙂

  1. I just wanted to let you know I have been read you for some time. On my new Laptop I have bookmarked your blog under Mental Health.
    Everything you write make so much sense and after I have read it I don’t feel like I,m the only one who has been there and done that.
    Thank you so much. You are indeed a rare treasure!

  2. Hey you,

    Some people are survivors who learn from mistakes and others are victims who repeat them over and over. Keep learning and don’t stop trying.

    “Failure is never so frightening as regret!”.

    TC!
