    Even little things. 'What

    if I would have stayed just an hour longer...' 'If I had said yes to that one invite.' That choice to leave the house or stay in bed. I always wonder if I'm missing a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet someone that could impact my life greatly in a positive way, or did I...

    If I Could Go Back ....

    I wouldn't have been so harsh towards people who were just trying to love me. I wouldn't have drank, smoked, or done drugs at such a young age. I would have tried harder in school and would have been more outgoing. The biggest thing .... I wouldn't have hurt my family, I wouldn...

    So many choices I've made the past few months

    and I can't stop asking myself how it would've been if I'd made different ones. I envision different outcomes, where they would leave me now. Though this isn't the best way to live in the present and move on from the past, one good thing about it is that it helps me realize that...

    To Rebuild A Bridge...

    To each his own, and may the ends justify the means. It seems to make sense, doesn't it? Even the most awful choices we make seem to justify the goal. I've reflected quite a bit on the things I've done. I'm pining...brooding...it's what you do when true love crumbles. You...

    I regret so many choices from my past. They're going to hunt me until the day I die, and I'm quite aware of that. I hope those who made me suffer can one day understand the pain that they put me through, and suffer it in their own flesh. If life came with a map...

    Man . . .

    There are so many what-ifs in my life, I could probably write an entire series about them. Good news is, I'm trying to make up for it now. Here's hoping for a better year . . . . .
