This can and often does happen.
For many people.
I think life is complicated, and that there are a lot of people out there with undiagnosed and untreated mental illness.
I have been fortunate to make a lot of “right” life decisions, but a plethora of people aren’t able to say the same.
I am grateful that I tend to make good decisions today, as yesterday wasn’t always so kind.
Have you made some historically bad decisions in your life? What did you do to eventually get smart?
