Ripped from the headlines

I’ve been on a personal media blackout since approximately the first week of the Trump administration. After watching President Trump systematically defund and destroy government programs that I begrudgingly accept as beneficial to humanity as a whole, I’ve given up on following the goings on for a while. I do have some kind of vague clue about what’s going on, thanks to friends and fellow bloggers, but besides that? My opinion is that I have no control over what is happening, and all it does is make me feel helpless and sick. I do not need help feeling helpless and sick, let me tell you…

I do have some kind of vague clue about what’s going on, thanks to friends and fellow bloggers, but besides that? My opinion is that I have no control over what is happening, and all it does is make me feel helpless and sick. I do not need help feeling helpless and sick, let me tell you…

So, for this prompt, I’ll share a recent article on something that every person has control over – the way they choose to live their lives. This article, from SimpleCapacity.com, shares a list of the top 37 regrets of older people. While I wouldn’t consider myself old, quite, I’m definitely not an 18-year-old anymore.

There’s a lot in large degree in common between this list and problems I have with my own life. I wish I had taken better care of myself, got angry and stayed angry less, valued my education more when I was younger, and put more energy into standing up for myself and repairing my own issues instead of trying to fix other’s problems instead – most of these people that I thought were so important and vital to me aren’t in my life anymore, or are just barely on the outskirts.

There’s nothing too surprising on this list, but I’ll put a higher priority on taking more risks, letting things go, creating a better social network. I especially need to work on recovering from negative emotional events in a quicker fashion. I’m a bit of a sulker.
