this is me: day #12
Some regrets instantly come to mind . . . failed first marriage, time wasted on someone who didn't love "us". But that regret is just as quickly erased with, ". . . but then you wouldn't have your two oldest daughters." Who I love so much!
I don't spend a lot of time on regrets. My first marriage taught me a lot about life. Just because someone loves you with all their heart doesn't mean it is what you need. Sometimes a person's ability to love is diminished by their love of their self, or their career or even the children you have together. Cinderella-complex and what-not clouded my vision . . . so I tried my best to give my daughters a realistic view of life and marriage. Not that you can't have a glorious life. . . but that sometimes even Cinderella has to scrub the toilet.
