When you look back on forks in the road, it can be tempting to think, ‘If I had/hadn’t done x, then I wouldn’t be with/doing/living in y…’, but the only way things could have gone is the way they did.
This is something my mate, Matt says – whatever situation you’re in, it just is. There is no ‘By this time, I could’ve or should’ve…’.
It is what it is
So instead of looking back on the 284 billion different hypothetical situations you’d be in had you made 284 billion different decisions (from big ones to small), just focus on ONE situation – the way things are. It’s the only way forward and the only one that actually exists (and was possible, since you made those decisions for a reason that seemed right to you).
