You have this one life.
How do you want to spend it?
Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Dieting?
Running after people who don't see you?

Be brave. Believe in yourself.
Do what feels good. Take risks.
You have this one life.
Make yourself proud.

Beardsley Jones

This time around, this is the life you have. It is what you make it

Everyone develops issues as they progress through childhood, not all of them are easily shrugged off once you reach adulthood. Some you don't even realize you continue to carry until they come up and slap you in the face. 

Once recognized, don't react, just pay attention. Ask yourself 'what is this, why am I reacting like this?' Then look into it. Is this feeling valid in your life today?

You don't want to carry all the negative emotions any longer than necessary. Regret is a waste of your time and creates stress. 

Whatever has happened, has happened. You can't change it. If you have apologies to make, make them. If you need to forgive, then forgive. Admit to wrongdoing or misunderstanding, why hold on to it? You are an adult, you don't have to lead a life that was planned for you, lead your own life. 

Free yourself of guilt, rules, expectations and just live your life your own way.
