We all make mistakes and have regrets. Second chances are rare even if people say everyone deserves them. Who wouldn’t want a second chance? What would you do with a second chance?
And what’s the other saying? The second time around is easier? Like when you’re going to a new location, the return journey is shorter, easier than the initial one. Makes sense; you know where you’re going based on where you’ve been.
But what if you don’t want a second chance to be where you’ve been? Traveling a familiar path can be more difficult when you know what perils loom in the undergrowth.
There’s a very real possibility that we will be moving back to a place I vowed never to return (I don’t talk about it). I have so many unresolved questions and feelings. Mostly, I am trying to change my attitude about it because the situation is what it is.
Being an adult with a capital “A” means doing and accepting things you don’t always like. But internally, I am throwing myself on the floor, pounding my fists and kicking my feet in a terrible tantrum.
Didn’t Frost advise us to take the road less travelled by?!
