For many years, I lived with guilty feelings from lifelong regrets that left me agitated and stressed. Each day felt like a new battle.
Every way I turned, my disappointments continued to stare back at me. I couldn’t get rid of the guilt that was constantly clouding my judgment on new situations, but as I slowly began to work on my spiritual beliefs, things slowly began to change. My inner beliefs helped me see that my guilt had nothing to do with me.
I began to understand that a lifetime of my regrets had everything to do with the control and the decisions that were made for me. I had never made a decision for myself or been given a choice to go down road A or road B. Unfortunately, any guilt or regrets we carry regardless of who’s guilt it is, will keep us stuck in the past. Written into our own history, it’s those books we cannot change.
Although it took me many years to get to that stage, it eventually felt like a release. I had done a lot of soul searching up to that point. As my outlook began to change so did my life. I slowly started to change some of the things that we’re keeping me stuck.
It was made easier because I knew my regrets never belonged to me. When I started to make my own decisions, those decisions were right. It’s easy for us to see a lifetime of regrets. The mind plays tricks on us and where we tell ourselves we’re okay, we’re not when we play back the tapes.
I see my decisions as a stepping-stone to yet more change and yet more lessons for me to learn. As I evolve and grow spiritually, I rely on my intuition to help me pave the way on my decisions so that I live with no more regrets moving forward.
