What would happen if you started looking back at your life and said: I did the best I could with what I had - the knowledge, resources, support available to me at that time? How might that change your attitude towards yourself and the sort of cringeworthy or angering memories you replay from time to time (especially at 3 am)?
Because you did.
Looking back at your past choices and berating yourself because you know better now is as helpful as expecting a baby to be born a marathon runner.
It's unrealistic and impossible.
Instead, try and congratulate yourself for knowing better now.
Or, for realising that you might find a different way going forward.
The first step is always self-awareness.
Until next time, take care, stay safe - and sane - and make kind choices!
