For my Boys: Regret

I didn’t really want to post this one. It hurts. To lay out all of my failings on one page like this. Yet, something compels me to do so. Perhaps it will cleanse me somehow. Hopefully it helps you. Mostly I know that airing out regrets helps drain them of their power, and loosen their hold on me. I’m at that age/point in life where I want to shed all the unnecessary weight I’ve carried for too long. Sometimes the hardest person to forgive is yourself (don’t steal that shit, Hallmark!)

I made this because I have two beautiful sons now. I want them to know that we all make mistakes, and that it is okay. Just get back up, and keep on chugging (they’re into trains right now).

As always, thanks for visiting the page! There is a new post every Thursday. Make it easy on yourself and subscribe.
