desperate – pasts

“We think of the past as water under the bridge. The current that carries away the mistakes of our youth. The loves we lost. The addictions we gave into. The opportunities we threw away. But sooner or later reminders drift back into our lives of the mistakes we made and sins we committed.

We’ve all done something in our lives we’re ashamed of. Some of us have fallen for the wrong man. Some have let go of the right woman. There are those who have humiliated their parents and those who have failed their children. Yes, we’ve all made mistakes that diminish us and those we love.

But there is redemption if we try to learn from those mistakes and grow.
