DAY 25: MY BIGGEST REGRET
I would like to think that I am a person who doesn’t live with regret, but that is just simply not true. There are things I wish I would have said and things I absolutely wish I hadn’t. I could easily think of 2-3 things that I would go back and do over if I could; none more than destroying my self-esteem by turning to an eating disorder for love. I spoke about this a few posts back, so I apologize if this seems a bit redundant, but it’s true. If I could have one mulligan, I would certainly use it to try and talk myself out of that pesky disorder that I was deadest on bringing into my life. If only I had known the kind of damage I would be doing to my self-esteem, I’d like to think that I would have chosen a wiser, more forgiving path, but who knows. I was so young, I’m not sure anyone or anything would have been able to talk me out of going through with those behaviors, but one can hope!
There was also that apple drawing fiasco that happened back in high school. Listen, I’m not proud of it, but I absolutely refused to participate in my art class in any capacity. My teacher reached out to my aunt to try and get me on board and even she knew it was a lost cause. I just would not do it. I was the definition of stubborn…to this day I still haven’t drawn that apple…oops!!
What about you? Do you have anything you regret?
