Locked Regrets

Are there places in your heart that you have locked up from both yourself and others? How long have we locked up our emotions? Seems like most of us  have done some locking and chaining and bolting, sometimes double checking to be sure it's secure. That locked place, a place where you used to go often, then less, ignoring it for periods of time, but not forgetting. Do you go there sometimes still? Is there something in particular that sparks a desire to go to that place? You know it's there, you know what is inside. A place that is heavy, emotional or overwhelming for you? Why do you keep it locked?  When is it time to truly be who you are, with confidence? To celebrate the positive that has come from the hardship. Have you not

 grown with insight, with life experiences and knowledge since that time? I think sometimes we lock up regrets, of what was, what might have been, what could be. The thing is that you can't go back, you can't relive that time, you can't do it over or do it different. You have to move on. It's how you got to this place, it's how you are you, it's those expereinces that made you who you are today. Think about letting go of the Regret,  use your key of life expereinces to unlock the door, and look into the dark at Regret now. It's probably not as big, not as strong. If we have grown and learned and are taking that negative energy and turning it into a positive force now, then it's surprising how that huge ugly monster of Regret, is really frail and aged . How when we stop nurturing Regret, that is can finally wither and die. Maybe the skelton in the closet is only ashes if you really look again with new eyes. You have power in your heart.
