Do you believe in ghosts?
Are you sure?
A ghost, I think, is someone or something that died and still haunts you.
So it could be an idea you had but didn’t follow through.
An opportunity you didn’t take.
A relationship that didn’t make it.
An abusive person or partner that you let into your life and allowed to stay a while – unchecked.
Regret – is a ghost.
I have memories.
And sometimes they appear in my head as regrets.
They really do feel like ghosts that haunt me.
But these days I spend time looking forward much more.
I don’t know how bright the future will be, but I believe that if I keep going and stay determined and stay focussed I should be OK.
I don’t believe in ghosts.
And so it follows, I suppose, that I don’t believe in regret either.
This is good to remember.
