Ever make one of those "no turning back" mistakes, those mistakes that could haunt you for a really long time? I am coming to terms with a big mistake, a mistake with possible enormous consequences. No, I'm not going to jail or anything. I haven't done anything illegal.
But I am also recognizing the valuable lesson that I'm learning. The upside is that I will be more cautious from now on, the downside is that I will also be a lot less trusting. It hasn't been fun, in fact for the most part it has sucked in a big way but I'm getting through it.
I don't think I'll be laughing about this one any time soon though.
