    Life: Lessons That Teach What You’ll Need To Know

    TodayLive each day with no regrets

    In the song classic “My Way” covered unforgettably by icons Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley, one line of the lyrics reads: “Regrets, I’ve had a few”. I suspect there is a regret pandemic. It is especially sad as one nears the end of life looking back with regrets. Peace is so elusive yet at the same time easy to find. One way is to live one day at a time and each day have no regrets. This requires following your innermost calling – even if that entails risk, for to hide behind a mask or portray yourself as anything other than who you are brings regret and cheats the world of the only thing anyone can offer – the amazing, authentic YOU!

    My greatest regret that continues to affect my relationships to this day is the loss of my childhood. Growing up I had to deal with my mother’s mental illness. At school I was bullied relentlessly to the point I didn’t want to go to school. I was so damaged that I retreated within myself, the only place I felt safe, and in doing so lacked the confidence or courage to explore youthful relationships.

    What is your biggest regret?
