Swallow the pill and move on

via Daily Prompt: Bitter

Regret is a bitter pill to swallow. Many times for me when a relationship that was important to me ended I would be filled with so many emotions – sadness, despair and regret, to name a few. Why regret? Did I regret ever being in a particular relationship? Never. What’s done is done. People who walk into your life usually have a reason or purpose, even if you don’t realize it at first. Sometimes the ending is so hurtful and painful that you wonder why were you even involved in the first place? How can someone treat another human, whom they supposedly cared about, as if they are garbage to discard? Regret of the relationship may set in.

Life is a series of choices. We choose who we allow into our life. Our choices don’t always work out, but that is how life works. You can either regret your choices and let the past eat away at you or you can swallow that bitter pill of regret and move on. It is not always an easy thing to do, but in the end, forgive yourself and cut yourself some slack. You are not perfect, your choices are not always perfect, but you and only you are in charge of your own destiny. Stand tall, be proud, but most of all be forgiving, of yourself and your choices.



About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.

    Sometimes I’m guilty of saying “If only I hadn’t been…” and “If only I had done this…” But it’s just a waste. You give good advice. I need to move on live in the moment and look ahead.

    I really shouldn’t regret my past too much. There was a whole lot of greatness about it. I have to accept that the bad parts were a learning experience that life just doesn’t always go my way.

  2. So if I am the only one in change of my destiny what are the two little things on my shoulders each telling me to go in a different direction? The little red dude with the pitchfork looks so much more believable that the one dressed up like a fairy.

    What a great post! I also tell my kids, “Life is a sum of all choices.” We have to make the best choices we can, and try and forgive ourselves for some of our wrong choices. None of us are perfect. We can learn and grow from each decision.
