    Beautifully written. The part titled “You have another chance at this” really resonates with me. I think that’s something we can remind ourselves daily. Thank you for sharing. xo

    I loved this. I often look at my younger self like Mil, what in the world were you doing?! I also realize that I sometimes didn’t know any better and other times I just didn’t even care. I think one of the most impactful lessons I learned was to love myself as much as I love others and If I had one lesson to share with myself or anyone younger would be that it always gets better and dark times don’t last forever.

    We are always so focussed to trying to/avoiding forgiving others that sometimes we forget how to forgive ourselves! When I started doing this it became so much easier to understand and appreciate why certain people had treated me a certain way in the past. Wise words- beautifully written!

    I love this! There are many things that I have regretted but there were also good things that came about as a result. Sometimes, you just have to be grateful and move on.

    I would tell myself that for alot of the things I would stress about doesn’t matter today. Things work themselves out and enjoy just being a “kid”

    I used to regret past decisions. That was until I realized that the decision I made created the person I am today and taught me so many valuable lessons. I love the woman I’ve grown to be so I’m ok with the bad decisions. The best thing it taught me was that I’m more than capable of making a mistake and handling it properly.

    I just turned 25 so I’ve been reflecting a lot on the different stages of my life so far. Before when I was reflecting I would always feel so stupid for my past mistakes & decisions. But lately I’ve realized that I couldn’t have the insight I did then as I do know. A lot of the decisions I made, made sense to me then, in the moment. Growth is such a beautiful thing.

  8. I’ve regretted many decisions from my youth. But it always makes sense when a situation arises and I can use what I learned from that bad decision to move forward. As horrible as life may seem sometimes, it really does shape our future.
