Regrets Can Motivate

Sometimes negative/harmful experiences in life can be beautiful motivations.  What if you have one more opportunity to acknowledge a regret?  What if there is a way to move around or past a prior bridge that has been burned through a regretful moment in time?

Even though this may be an amazingly humble invitation for any of us to apologize for a problem we contributed to, this effort may be a turning point in comfort.  Comfort for you and comfort for someone who is nearing the end of their life.

I am hoping a conversation like this isn’t about explaining all the ins and out of a regret…but one simply acknowledging the impact of the regret.  There was a point in time when these relationships were close, close enough to hurt each other and now hopefully close enough to bring back comfort.  Maybe even a bit of peace.
