Recently, I’ve been looking a lot into my past.
I don’t know if you’ve ever heard the same, but there is a saying that goes that you’re a new person every 7 years.
I do believe that this is true. Because when I look at myself 7 years ago I’m completely different now than I was in. It’s an interesting thing to look at yourself in the past because in some ways I definitely feel like I’ve gotten better at certain things, and in other ways I actually think I’ve gotten worse. I’ve been having some regrets about some of the decisions I’ve made in the past, relationships I’ve been in, and old jobs that I used to have that I really should have kept that I let go. I guess I didn’t always make the best decisions, I still remember this one time one of the dumbest things I’ve done was try to repair my AC system myself. Everybody I knew warned me not to do that, they all told me it was a really bad idea but I was stubborn and didn’t want to listen. I was so sure that I would be able to fix it myself that I didn’t bother to listen to those around me. I had gotten out all these tools and tried to repair my air conditioning system only for things to go terribly wrong. Not only did I really badly injure myself and I had to go to the hospital, but I had damaged my AC system in the process. Paying for the damages to my AC system is not fun but I had to if I wanted to have a functioning air conditioner.
