I regret cutting off all contact with the person who fathered me ( I refuse to call him my father ) because I I’m finally ready to explain that If you ask a six year old “what is a ferrous metal ? and they answer “I don’t know”, this doesn’t mean that they’ll never, ever amount to anything. I regret my memories at about age 3 trembling for what seemed like hours after a beating for going to the shop with my sister to buy football cards. I regret that even now, in my fifties I think about these episodes every day ……….
I DO NOT regret that my own children know they are love and cherished & made to feel treasured every single day.
I DO NOT regret that I have become successful with few, in any worries.
I DO NOT regret that I owe you nothing , not even pity……
