I don’t often question core aspects of my identity, and about my own perception of my life experiences, but today... wow, what a doozy.
Many years ago, I unintentionally hurt someone, and was ashamed of it then, and am now more so after finding out they’ve held onto a perspective of my actions that I didn’t comprehend at the time. Being young and stupid, I assumed everything was ok. I couldn’t have been more wrong. And now I understand so many things unsaid throughout the years, or at least think I do.
No words or actions could ever repair the resentment held against me. And until this moment, I’m not sure I’ve ever felt regret of this magnitude. I am so terribly sorry.
