MAKER’S ARCADE was this Saturday. My girlie and I made a morning of it. After waiting in the (somewhat excruciatingly long) line we had so much fun eating tasty treats, browsing all of gorgeous booths, meeting Santa and more. I was seriously impressed with the effort made to make it family friendly. I definitely recommend marking your calendar for next year if you’re looking for some special gifts and a fun family day.
So yeah... do any of you live with regrets?
Typically I live life as present as possible but there are still these few moments that I regret. When you take on new roles, and grow into a newer version of yourself, there’s the probability that you’ll be a dick in the process. Or self deprecating, explosive, implosive, short tempered, too much of whatever your weakness is. And maybe until you take that leap, you won’t even truly know your weakness. For me, I have been all too critical of others. Probably because I was being beyond critical of myself and not allowing forgiveness for anything. Couple that with this determination to hold others accountable so they can be the best possible version. I felt that if I didn’t tell them, no one would, and was pretty blunt about it all. FYI I’m still doing this and try very hard to just be a good listener. It’s really f-ing hard for me though. This weakness is also my strength. I know that some of the receivers of my criticism, perfectionism, harshness etc. have grown tremendously, while others have become debilitated from it. I don’t typically practice that side of my characteristic anymore, especially at work. I’ve become more hands off, more patient etc. but it really does haunt me years later. I am realizing how hard it is to let go of guilt and resentment and how often they feel the same/ have the same effect on you.
What’s my point? Forgiving yourself and forgiving others is so important if you want to move forward. Send out love and drop it. And hope that one day soon, those affected by you, can release it as too.
My other point: anytime you feel yourself telling others how to be, you are projecting. Take a moment to look in the mirror and re-adjust.
I am truly sorry for hurting you. I release you. .
