Now this ‘No regrets’ policy is something I actually live by. I suffer from an uncommon trait in today’s world-Brutal Honesty. Maybe it’s because I’m young enough to be able to get away with it. Maybe it’s because I believe in speaking my mind,irrespective of consequences-at least where talking to my peers is concerned.
Moving on to ‘something that once made you smile’ bit of it,that is a lot easier said than done.
“You run out of tears long before you run out of hurt.”-Gregson.
That is true. When you shatter,it takes time to heal,to mend,and sometimes it changes you irrevocably.
But it’s okay. Because someday,you wake up and you can breathe. The grey cloud floating above has disappeared and it’s a Good day.
For me,Someday took some 2 years to finally show up. And when it did,I realized that that’s how life lessons happen.
It’s like C.S.Lewis said ” Experience.That most brutal of teachers. But you learn. My god,do you learn.”
So despite how over used it may be,I’m gonna say – Never regret anything that once made you smile. Anything that made you happy once was time well spent.
Speak your mind-somehow when you don’t the feelings fester in your heart and dwell in your mind until it becomes all-consuming. The consequences be damned,at least you did what you believe to be right.
And if you’re ever unsure of what to do,think of this- Trust your gut and heart,they somehow already know what you want to be.
