Life changes with every single decision we make. Some of the changes are just more dramatic than others. Your life may be different than it could have been but that doesn't mean it's over. Different doesn't have to be worse. It might be right now but it doesn't have to stay that way. If you can take wrong paths you can also take right ones.
Don't count out your life based on what was merely a fraction of it. Even people in prison for life can find reasons to live and it would be hard to argue that they didn't lose a great deal to a bad decision.
Thats exactly it - it was about going down the wrong path.
I had problems and issues and lacked the maturity to deal with it - added to that I had no parental or family guidance around me.
16 years old - things were still fresh and ready to put things right
But by 17 years old - 18 years old - 19 years old........................
Your life has spiralled down the wrong path.
Instead of developing my life - I was screwing up my life.
All very very regretable.
My life today - is deeply effected by that momemteum created many years ago.
All deep regret.
