(note: this is an answer to a Plinky promt, “What is your favorite mistake?”)
I have made many mistakes in my life and I’m only 28 years of age.
But I have many and hardly any that I really, honestly regret making, especially where they only effected me.
But in truth a mistake never only effects just you… I’m sorry for all the people I hurt along the way, sorry for making them miserable, sorry for not caring (enough) if I did or even noticing.
I guess a favorite mistake of many, is falling in love. I never see that as a mistake until I make the “mistake” of falling out off love… “Kayleigh, how did it come to this bitter end? “ But in turn that doesn’t turn out to be a mistake, since you made each other miserable.
Maybe everything is as it should be…
No regrets…. Maybe that makes every mistake a favorite.
