I don’t want to dive into a long list of criticisms of myself, my life and how I could have done things better. That would be the easy way to approach this article and god knows I traumatise myself with these thoughts regularly enough. Life is always easier when looked at with the benefit of hindsight. Rather, I would like to look at this through more forgiving eyes. Sure, I made mistakes and could have gone about things in a more positive, productive way but I say this with the benefit of lots of experience and from learning things the hard way. I did the best I could with limited knowledge at the time.
