And then I came across this quote.
And they all have something in common. Their contribution to my life story has made me who I am. The good things, the bad things, the stuff in between.
Like everyone, I have my regrets. Things unsaid, never done, things I should have held back on - but I suppose that's my path - and it'll lead me where I need to be.
I hope your story is as good as mine. Filled with love, laughter, and all the things that get you there - including heartbreak and sadness.
And if you don't feel like the bad things lead you to something better, then just remember that you're not alone.
