Mistakes

My favorite quote of the week – Grey’s Anatomy

“Turns out sometimes you have to do the wrong thing. Sometimes you have to make a big mistake to figure out how to make things right. The stakes are painful. They’re the only way to find out who you really are. I know who I am now. And I know what I want.” (from GA season 3 epi 3)
Here’s my take:

We all make mistakes especially in our youth and later on, it kind of defines who we are. We learn from our mistakes and hope against hope we don’t commit the same mistakes. People get hurt along the way. Sometimes not deliberately. Some people will never forgive us for our mistakes, as if they never committed mistakes in their lives themselves. But we go on with our lives and do the best that we can.

Not everyone gets second chances, sometimes they are branded for life. Some people never get back on their feet and buries themselves deeper in sorrow and anguish and depression. Others bounce right back, shrug it off and just do the best they can. I would like to believe I belong to the latter. I did encounter lots of trials and tribulations and I have managed to emerge a well rounded person (I hope). I think those mistakes that I made in my youth made me a better person. And I know what I want. I am older and wiser and I have learned a lot from my mistakes. I will continue to make mistakes but I will continue to learn and live.

Regrets

One thing that I will always regret for the rest of my life is breaking up with my then boyfriend of more than 3 years via a Dear John letter.

I am so ashamed that I did this.

It sounded like a good idea at that time – less drama, ripping the band-aid off and closing a chapter in my life. Plus I was peer pressured into doing it.

But he deserved better. Even if he cheated on me first by hooking up with a girl while we were together. Two wrongs don’t make a right. For his family though, never mind that he was the one who wronged me first, I will forever be that bitch who broke their pretty boy’s heart.

It has been so long now, ancient history, really. But there are some moments in your life that sticks to your memory forever, something that will leave a bad taste in your mouth.

This was one of them.
