Life can be so cruel. They say you should learn from your past mistakes, but I find that to be sometimes impossible. Past behavior and habits have a way of coming back the minute your life takes a turn for the worst. What’s a bandaid if the scar will open again?
One of the more moving experiences I had was getting a ECG for my heart. Mines a bit off, but seeing the nuanced ups and downs on the chart gave me chills. Life is like a heartbeat and the downs come just as fast as the highest of highs. If the line is flat then there is no life.
Knowing this, I rather face all the lows and terrible days that are surely ahead of me than go flat line.
