Do you even believe in regrets? I do.
For me, they’re just life lessons. It’s a chance to reflect on experiences with a little distance and a more objective POV.
My biggest regret? Probably the main source of all my would’ve, could’ve, should’ves. That is... a poor sense of confidence & self-worth.
I may have come by this issue naturally as a child held responsible for the impossible - but wish I hadn’t taken so long to put it into perspective. Better late than never!
The take-aways are obvi... First, personal “stuff” can’t help but seep into our relationships, especially parenting (only the most important & scary job ever!). So, while I regret lost opportunity to do better with my OG’s, I’m sure grateful for the chance with my grands; and
The sooner we reflect and reframe our less than best experiences, the happier, healthier & smarter we’ll be!
So tell me friend, what regret has taught you the most?
