These regrets can leave us entombed in our own misery. Really like the tree analogy, Michael. Very nicely done! Love, Carolyn

Hey Michael, your words have so much insight into regret and how it can be blinding. How it alters our view of life in general. I love this and like many others I totally relate to it as well. Thank you for your kind words on my writes and blog... Miss reading your work...Lay

Very good advice...Best to get an apology out there and put that regret behind.. When one has done what they can do.. They have done what they could to correct the past mistake then they don't have to live with regret....Sara
