Day 22 — Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life

The mistakes I have made in my life are just that, mistakes and not something to measure all my proclivities against. I am not perfect nor will I ever be perfect. The mistakes are learning moments, teaching moments so they aren’t or weren’t in vain.

The one thing I wish I had done differently was ending a relationship sooner rather than later. I stayed even though I couldn’t stand to be around him and the feelings were the build up to the betrayal on his part and although I thought I had forgiven him for it, in reality I accepted less than I was worth. Part of me felt like I was being the bigger person, but in reality I was miserable and feared being alone. I had to let go gradually. And when it was over there were no tears, just a heart that had been battered and bruised.

I spent many years healing from the time but I learned my self-worth, my own peace and knowing what I wanted in my next relationship.

  1. I often hate the “something you wish you hadn’t done in your life” scenarios — in my opinion those are the things I have learned the most out of. And because of them I know the steps not to take to ensure they are not repeated. But I understand ….

  2. Ah! I recognize that one rather well; sounds like good (too) many of my past relationships. Fortunately, I later saw them as valuable life lessons that led me to the great relationship I’m in now
