Sometimes we do things in our life that we later go on to regret, or something we didn’t do that perhaps we should have done.
Over the years, there we’re lots of things I tried to change and address, but none of what I tried to change had any impact on the people who should have encouraged me to aspire to and do things with my life. I am lucky that I have had the strength of character to get past the disappointment.
After years of constantly trying to change my circumstances, I eventually gave in, but knowing I had no choice didn’t make my decision any easier. At the time we come to make our decision, we never think that years later we will come to live with regret over a decision we made years previously. It’s only when the years roll on and we look back that we live with regret.
In my own case I learned that not to let go, would continue to make my life impossible, but I also knew that letting go meant I would have to give up on the idea that I could do something with my life. Hanging on for longer doesn’t change our life if our circumstances don’t change.
I would always have been caught between a rock and hard place, my life was never going to change. My life would never have been any different. Sometimes it’s not for us to live with the regret.
