People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together”… Marilyn Monroe LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Awesome!

They all begin with my curiosity and lack of self control – even when I know what I’m doing or want to do is “bad”.

I don’t know. LikeLiked by 1 person Interesting question, but I don’t have an interesting answer. Not sure any past mistake really haunts me. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Interesting answer. How often do you think about your past? LikeLike Reply Not allowing my grandmother to finish what would have been her last words to me. I spoke over her, and that still makes me sad. Then again, she had a sharp tongue, so maybe it wasn’t so bad… LikeLiked by 3 people Reply I guess your tongue is sharper than hers. How important was the topic? LikeLike Reply I don’t recall. She was starting to say something “I’m.. I’m” and I cut in with “Yes, you’re dying.” Damned stupid of me.

It was a stressful relationship, many exhausted days, but it lead me to meet my husband. So some joy cane out of it. LikeLiked by 1 person When I was a child (and had just learned about how babies are made), telling a family friend (one year my junior) even though she had said she wasn’t sure she wanted to know, everything I’d been told… It nearly cost our families a friendship of a lifetime… Even 20 years on… I still feel deep remorse, especially during my depressions… 😢 LikeLiked by 3 people Reply I see… how affected was your relationship with that person? LikeLike Reply We’re as close as sisters now, but at the time we weren’t allowed to see each other… Just in case I said anything else. It took a long time to rebuild the bridges between her and also with her mother too. 😦 LikeLiked by 1 person I’m glad you managed to do it. LikeLike Not yelling at the vet who mistreated a kitten i found under a car in the hottest summer heat. She died. My mistake was trusting him, who did not tell me what was wrong with her, if she was dying, if she was better off being euthanized because she looked like she had trouble breathing. That was 10 years ago, i was a kid but still… LikeLiked by 1 person Reply The kitten got ill about a month and a half after being adopted by my cat. She didn’t die of sunstroke, she actually survived that (she was 3months old) LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Bottom line, never making the mistake of trusting doctors without checking the facts myself [Sry for three comments, i’d edit the text into one if it were possible] LikeLiked by 2 people No worries. LikeLiked by 1 person I understand your pain… Situations like this one are signs that we need to communicate our concerns. But then again, you were a child. I don’t think the vet did anything different even though you have yelled at him. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Men. Lol. Not all of them…😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply How are “they” still haunting you?

The past is the past for a reason, so I choose to leave it there and live for today! LikeLiked by 2 people Reply That’s an awesome approach! Have you always been able to view things in this way?

Do you still work there? LikeLike Reply Yes, with the same manager. A good thing is that because of our conflicts I started seeing the psychologist. The bad thing is that I still did not manage to change the job. Working on it however 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Trusting someone after having all the signs to stop doing it. Not letting go, being stubborn, thinking that feelings make it all (which is untrue, if they don’t come with respect, shared values etc.). But I am quite at peace with it, now 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply If you’re at peace, that’s the most important. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Choosing the wrong college majors LikeLiked by 1 person Reply What did you choose and what do you now think it would’ve been a better choice?
