I could change a previous relationship,
that ended in heartbreak.
I could have taken risks I avoided in the moment.
I could have voiced what was on my mind,
instead of holding it in.
There are many “I could haves,”
yet, I would not give in to these temptations.
the risks both taken and avoided,
and the words held in,
are all why I am who I am today.
If I chose to do-over my heartbreak,
I would not have learned the valuable lessons I did.
Small do-overs could put my life onto a different track.
Although life is hard at times,
everything happens for a reason.
While the reason may not be known to you at the time,
it could shape you as a person.
Everything that has happened in my life
has made me, me.
So do-overs are not an option.
