A Thought on Guilt and Regret from a Seasoned Mama Bird

Young woman deep in thought

Guilt and Regret

As heard on KLBT 88.1

Guilt and regret are loaded thoughts that do not move your life forward. It is easy to swell on the past and wish circumstances had been different. Unless you owe someone an apology, what’s the point?

Divorce gives us all sorts of reasons to regret. It takes a conscious effort to move past those nagging thoughts. What could I have done differently? What will my children think when they are older? Why did I get myself into this mess in the first place?

I hope you can see how futile this is. And be kind to yourself.
