Regret! Do we have any regret? I read inspirational blogs, saying to “Live with no regrets.” or, “I have no regrets.” How do we grow in compassion and learn -without regret? I have lots of regrets. Some may be as small as thinking some man was ugly -up to, not becoming a veterinarian. Some of them mattered -like, getting in the car with the boys who raped me -to the last time I whipped my eldest daughter. She lied to me, so I whacked her three times with a belt. I had so much regret -I never hit her again. I’ve made mistakes. Lots and lots of mistakes have been plaguing my conscience, for a very long time. Each of these mistakes, or errors in judgement, helped me to grow, as a human. Compassion, regret, change, giving -these are all needed, so we become better people. Not perfect, but better!

I think of all the years I suffered from depression. Days in bed, hours sleeping to escape my suffering, and the self-doubt. What changed? I did get Lupus -and I started taking fish oil, daily. Somehow, learning I could die young, made me want to live. It gave me the confidence to live. At least, I wanted to live, completely, every day I had left to live.
