Disclaimer: If you read this and you think you know what it's about, you're probably wrong, especially if you're a guy. I've been doing a lot of thinking lately -- probably too much -- and this is what I've concluded. This in no way reflects anything but decisions I've made and things I've done.
Note: If you can relate to this and it applies to you in some way, that's great and it makes me happy. A lot of things have happened in my life lately and, from some of the reactions I've gotten on this, in the lives of a lot of my friends. But this is NOT a reference to anyone in particular or how anyone in particular should be feeling, thinking, etc. It's based on several different things and only applies to me at this point in time. But, like I said, if you can relate to what I'm saying, that's lovely. Just don't take it any one way.
We look out for each other around here.
felt the need to resurrect an old quote from Kendal in light of what's been
going on lately. Trust is a sketchy thing. Everyone can be trusted to a
degree, but sometimes it's hard to figure out what that degree is. Sometimes
people hurt you. This fact cannot be escaped. And I don't think I can name
one person who hasn't been hurt in some way. But...
I personally would not go back and change anything in my
life. So many things have happened and there are things that I should
probably regret. But regret, like anger and running away, is useless. It only
makes us dwell on what could have been instead of what could be. The future
holds so much potential for beauty, but beauty is nothing unless we have
something to hold against it and compare. Unless we learn from our mistakes,
our reality goes nowhere. It stays stagnant and unresolved while we seep
ourselves in the belief that what we have is enough, because it cannot get
any worse. If you are happy, so be it. But think about what you might be
Would you rather spend your life wondering what you missed or
knowing that you tried?
