Thank you for responding in this thread - which I might never have seen otherwise.
You are right - nothing is lost by responding - you brought this touching thread to the forefront by being touched by it.
At the end of her last post the OP says:
I simply need to just live.
In the end, that is all any of need to do...just live
We don't really have any other option, do we? I love how you talk about regret. I am blessed in my life that have so few (a guy I didn't sleep with, a guy that I did
, a concert that I didn't attend...that about sums it up for me.).
At the end of the day, I can be comfortable with my choices (my usual state) or I can be uncomfortable (which suggests to me that I may have a task for the days ahead).
Thank you for bringing this to the forefront.
