    Some mistakes are worth making.

    I sometime regret but then I tell myself " if there was no mistake in life , there would be no lesson, if no lesson no meaningful life".so we need a mistake to correct ourself, to be a better person.

    The knives were dull.

    I needed a release and something to bring me back to reality before my demons completely took over. And the knives were dull. Barely made a dent. Not sure if I should be relived or angry.

    I started talking to an ex boyfriend again.

    When I knew it was a bad idea. It made me realize that I can't keep living in the past and I have to move on to bigger and bigger things.
