There was a time when I was confident and excited at proving the world wrong, because I believed so deeply in people's ability to change for the better.- even in the people who seem hopeless. I still believe that, even if that change never occurs inside of them - because I see proof of change everyday - in others, and in myself.
I'm far from perfect, but am willing to examine myself, and my patterns of dysfunction, and then put in the work to better myself. It's a daily practice, but it’s working. Sure, its easy to tell someone, "I told you so” especially if you're criticizing someone from the outside, but that attitude comes from a place called Ego, and not Love. I know I deserve a big fat "I told you so,” from everyone, and wish I didn't have to say, "You all were more right than you'll ever know” but you were.
Not to worry, I've gladly paid the consequences for every mistake I've ever made, but learned so much from each of them. I tried my best to go through all of this without venting, or complaining, or fueling more tabloid mumbo jumbo - but this isn't about any of that. This is about me making peace with myself, and forgiving myself for making some bad mistakes. Time is something you can never get back, and what we do with this very present moment is the most real thing we have. Life is far too grand to focus on the negative and put each other down.
Sending Love and Light to everyone, especially those who weren't always so kind...
