It is very rarely in life we get a chance to revisit a particular situation from our past and see what might have eventuated if circumstances had been different. It’s like using a time machine and taking our present day self to the past to see how we might have handled it with what we know now.
I had the privilege of doing so over the last 6 weeks. The outcome remained the same, but I learned that I was stronger and more self aware and thus able to deal with it better. I also learned that all the “what ifs” I had agonized over once upon a time could not have changed what was meant to be. More than anything it has helped bring closure to what was once a gaping wound..I am grateful to have had this opportunity.
