I’m a person who is tormented by regrets. Who regrets so many things he did in his past. And every day wishes he could go back in time in his past and re-do all the mistakes he made. Make it right.
Of course you can’t do that. You can’t change the past. So it’s a futile gesture.
And yet in the present moment I still feel this pressing need to be exonerated from the guilt I feel about my past bad actions
Does that make any sense?
About the only thing I can do is ask God for forgiveness. It’s one of those things. Where there’s no easy way to resolve it.
