If life gave you a second chance, would you take it? Would you choose a different path? Would you do things differently? Would you take an alternate life course?
Sometimes destiny throws back something from our past to make us rethink everything. Not so much to despair or regret about the path we took, but rather to acknowledge how far we’ve actually come. How many things have happened since then, how much we’ve achieved and how much more we can accomplish because of all those experiences.
We are given a chance to review our lives in order to regain our lost confidence. To realise that we are worth and capable of much more than we give ourselves credit for. Something we usually only understand if we view ourselves from someone else’s point of view.
We chose the course we did for a reason. Perhaps it was not obvious then, perhaps it is not obvious not even now. But there is one. We become stronger from what we go through, what we are called to deal with, the difficulties, the challenges, the fights. Our successes also arise from our failures.
So, in reality, we should live a life not regretting of the past but being grateful that we managed to survive everything that was thrown our way.
We are not supposed to start over, even if given the chance. Because we are not supposed to quit in the first place.
