What do you think?
I've made some mistakes in life, and many of my mistakes have taught me very wise lessons, shaped my character and helped me in other ways.
But that's not to say, I wouldn't change anything from the past.
Knowing everything I know now, I might have changed a couple of things, but then again, it would be delving onto a different path, which can also bring about uncertainty, problems, unhappiness, heart ache, so maybe in the grand scheme of things, if we were to believe in God, then we have to believe everything happens for a reason and you have landed in this place, at this moment for a reason.
That is a comforting thought I think. That things have a purpose and they all fit into place like a jigsaw. We want perfect lives but they don't exist. We want peace in our friendship circles, spouses, siblings, parents and this doesn't exist 100% of the time either. How can two minds, hearts, souls that come together from different paths, experiences, feelings, thoughts ever be on the same page 100% of the time? They just can't. And then it boils down to how a person handles situation. Do they fly off the handle at the slightest disagreement?
Do they remain silent until they have gathered their thoughts? Do they forgive? Do they forget? Do they harbour the bitterness to allow it to consume them and you?
