This was a wonderful read. It echoes so much of my sentiments at this time in my life. Choices made for me changed the whole course of my life and killed a lot dreams. I became bitter. Now, due to that bitterness, the people I love are very difficult to reach out to because I hurt them, without realizing, over the years. They have their own lives, and freedom, and no time for me. Lessons learned too late and unable to undo the damage.
