As we age we have a habit of looking back at our lives and wonder ” if only”. If only I would have done such and such? Or if only I would have been more understanding things could have been different? You have no way of knowing that for a fact! Maybe if you could go back and change things the way you feel they should have been handle then things would have been different? Oh really?
A good example is this one. Almost 25 years ago someone answered an ad to a Christian singles paper and that led him to the love of his life. What if only he had not answered that ad and continued his life?
We can all beat ourselves to death with this ” if only ” game but all that does get you emotionally worn out.
