Too many self help sources say that you should not regret anything…but that isn’t reality…you can spend and waste your entire life in a battle to forget or justify carrying guilt or a memory of hardship. Those same self help sources say that life is about memories…do you see the conflict there? You have to keep it real.
Some of the most successful people, regardless of how you define success, have come up from hardship. You need to tell yourself, “never again”, and integrate that regret or memory into your future, by letting it ignite the energy of betterment…ignite the passion to create the life you want while being the person you know you are and wish to be…but know that you must earn it, and create it.
