I got hit with a question about Mr. Ex yesterday that fucked me up. I don’t have many regrets in life—- I believe everything, good or bad, happens for a reason and you’re supposed to learn something from it. That said, there are some lessons that I wished I learned another way. Maybe because they were so painful (Mr. Ex) or shocking (almost drowning, my car doing a 180 on the beltway in heavy traffic, etc.) that I learned them the first time around. I don’t know. Regret is also a wasted emotion because there is nothing really that you can do about the past since you can’t change it.
