Regrets. We all have them. If only I could take it back! If I had it to do over, I would have handled it differently.
We all stumble and fall. We fail to live up to our own expectations. Unless we learn to forgive ourselves, we will live in a state of perpetual guilt. When our words or actions affect others, we can apologize, but it is up to the person we wronged whether they value our relationship enough to overlook our offense and forgive us. Unfortunately, the mistakes we make also affect our relationship with God.
