This Is The Worst Mistake Of My Life

I’m about to embark on a new adventure next year, so it’s a good time to reflect on the past. In doing so I’ve remembered all the things that I have and haven’t done that landed me where I am right now.

I’m content with my life, and it’s slowly getting better, but something keeps bugging me about my past. Looking back on things, I could have gotten to a good place much sooner. I know that’s not all my fault, but I should have taken the risks that would have helped me grow into a much better person.
