Beauty and Regret

We all do things that we regret. I regret being selfish. I’ve been selfish in life by so many ways. I’ve been selfish in life, wanting it all and I’ve been selfish as a friend and family member. But the thing I regret the most is being a selfish lover. And not selfish in a sexual way, not trying to just get mine and roll over and go to sleep as most do. I’ve been selfish by wanting other men. Wanting them when I shouldnt. Luckily this is one of the areas in life that I have been strong in. I've been mostly loyal in life. But I am weak sometimes. Life has really thrown some curves balls at me and I usually seam to strike out. Life is like a fast ball, It comes at you with enormous speed, gets to you and is gone before you know it. Do we ever catch up?

I always say that you shouldn't be so tough on yourself because there are SOOOO many people out there more than willing to bring you down.

Just a thought.

Very interesting post. Thanks for sharing.

Maybe we shouldn't try to catch up. Sometimes the best we can do is bunt. And there will always be that next at bat. Have I exausted all the metaphors?

You are young ... selfishness is a necessary layer of protection in youth. Youth will be served they say ... for that very reason. However, that you recognize something of the nature of this selfishness means you are already outgrowing it.

Give it time, and you just might find that after trying to catch up to life, that it has only just caught up to you.
