If you could go back and change one thing, what would it be?
That promise you couldn’t keep? Maybe with your current state of
mind, you’ll keep it this time. That heart you broke? Maybe it’ll be easier
if you never met her. Those tears you caused? Maybe you’ll think twice.
Truth is, you can’t ever go back. The past will always be there, staring at
you from a distance. You can’t change what’s already been. The only way
to move forward from whatever is holding you back is by confronting it.
It’s uncomfortable and you might feel utterly hopeless in even considering
it. That’s exactly how it should be. It should never be easy, you have to earn
the right to live free. Free from guilt that you collected. Free from the words
that slipped without you thinking. They might think your selfish for trying
to garnish closure, and that’s alright. Give them a chance to hate you in front
of you and not in their own minds. Give them a chance to destroy who you
used to be. Let them liberate you as will for them. If you could go back
and change one thing, reject it. Embrace the human condition.
