    There are plenty of things I've done

    that I wish I hadn't. Probably plenty of things I haven't done that I wish I had! 'Regret is an inevitable consequence of life' Don't you think?

    But I Learned From It

    Even though I hate so much my past and how I wish it didn't happen.. I am still grateful for it because it helps me define my true self.... even though it hurts so much.. It still teach me a lifetime lesson... Happiness is a choice

    It No Longer Controls Me

    I worked on my past a lot in therapy and now know what happened to me and why I turned out like I did. But I also learned in therapy HOW to live a better life NOW and get over my past. I can not say I am done getting over the crap that happened before but I sure am glad I have...

    It sounds romantic, doesn't it?

    The dream of fading away, vanishing into the night and when the sun comes up you simply cease to exist, or perhaps you become somebody new. All your troubles are left behind, you can undo every single wrong thing that you've done. It's as if you get to live another life, this...

    Everything I have wrote about is my past.

    I have trouble escaping it. Maybe it's because of someone showing me a new way of life, or someone else trying to end it. But, no matter what it's always on my mind. Sometimes I'm afraid I'll never escape it. Other times I believe in the power of love and the power within me...
