I hate every mistake, snafu, wrong turn, bad choice, etc. I have ever made, and there be many, yet, each one of them factored into who I am. Where would I be-- who would I have become-- without them? I am my adjustments/corrections/reversals/alterations. And you are yours. The way we have responded to the errors of our ways has produced all that we are. No one knows what all to avoid without the trials and errors. We need to be prouder of our limps and scars, and the price we have paid to be here/now. And kinder to ourselves for not knowing more sooner. It is all a part of the way! Live on! Live on!
