All My Regrets

I have a lot of regrets.. I regret all the pain I´ve caused with my bitchy behavior, I regret the times I got so drunk I couldn´t even remember what I had done the night before, I regret all the casual sex I´ve had in college..I eventually got pregnant and had an abortion, I regret pushing away the one person that really loved me, I regret fighting with my brother the night before he was killed in a car accident, I regret all the lies I´ve told my parents, I regret I have never been a good friend to anyone.

I think about these things almost daily. I wish I could turn back time.

you can do things you think your brother would like you to do

Each day is a new canvas, take control of your life and do the right thing. Give up drinking is a good place to start.

OK .. you can't change the past but you can use it as a guide. Look at your past acts clearly (just as you have detailed them here) and resolve not to repeat them. We all make mistakes and some of them are serious errors of judgment. Regrets are understandable but if you are still alive you have opportunity to correct that behavior. Life is long…. there is more pain and lots of joy ahead. The first step toward betterment is recognition.<br />
Congratulations you are on the way to being a better woman!
