For some of you that have been following this medical story of my wife, some of you may know that I feel I failed her when she needed me most. I had to make decisions and some of those decisions were not ones that her and I wanted but were told it was the only way, but in most of her treatment I was not included in any of the decision making process. The past few months I have been discouraged thinking if I had only do this or that she may still be here. A nurse that I have been following for a while put my mind at ease today. I have to remember that the decisions I had to make were with the information I had at the time, not the information and knowledge I have now. She writes this.......
When we know better, we do better. 💕 Hindsight often provides us with a clearer perspective and a deeper understanding of situations. It's natural to wish that we had known then what we know now, as it could have influenced our decisions and actions. However, it is essential to offer yourself compassion and grace. Recognize that you were operating with the knowledge and resources available to you at that specific point in your life.
Acknowledging that you were doing your best given the circumstances is a testament to your growth and resilience. It signifies that you have learned from your experiences and have evolved as an individual. Instead of dwelling on regrets or self-blame, use those insights to empower yourself in the present and future.
Life is a continuous journey of learning and growth. Embrace the lessons from the past, be grateful for the wisdom you have gained, and continue evolving into the person God intricately designed you to be. No one is exempt from making mistakes, so be forgiving of yourself along the way.
