Regret

Do I have regret . . . 

Doesn't everybody?

regret  -- a : to mourn the loss or death of  b : to miss very much  2 : to be very sorry for

I mourn the loss of my innocence.

I mourn the death of loved ones.

I miss Auntie and Uncle Horace so much.

I am so sorry for not having been the wife and mother I wanted be.

Regret gets a bad rap these days. But lets remember -- people who suffer from Antisocial personality disorder and Dis-social Personality Disorder are incapable of feeling regret or remorse -- so maybe regret isn't all that bad. I don't want to live a life riddled with regret, but I also don't want to go through life unable to acknowledge struggles, losses, and mistakes.

So yes, regrets, I've had a few.

  2. I had no idea that was the definition...interesting!! I wish I could have been the mother I wanted to be too. My kids are still semi young, but what if it is too late? :sigh:

  3. I always think about that one too: being a better mom. I absolutely agree with you about not wanting to go through life without acknowledging struggles, etc. There's a quote by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross about beautiful people, that I love! Basically, it says that the most beautiful people are those that have known hurt, loss, defeat, struggle, suffering, etc. Stopping by from the link-up and now following. :-)
