When a loved one dies, there are many memories for the years ahead. Sometimes, there are regretful memories of something you did or didn’t do; said or didn’t say. These are the memories that haunt you for the remainder of your days…if you let them. It isn’t easy, but putting these regretful memories to rest is necessary.
These regretful memories are dark clouds that block the sunshine of good memories. They rob you of the joy of remembering the good times. Let them float away. You loved the best you knew how at the time; you did the best you could at the time, even if you tell yourself otherwise.
Hindsight is always 20/20, but it looks at the past and there is nothing you can do about the past. It is yours to enjoy the good times. Your loved one would not want you to live regretfully, but joyfully. For them, remember the good times.
