    Same Thing Every Day..

    Well, I Do, But...

    I know the reason I'm not happy is because I cannot forgive myself for my past mistakes. What I don't understand is why I can't forgive myself. "It's all in the past", that's the mindset I should be taking, but I just keep going over everything I've done wrong in my head...
