I like to think of myself as a fairly intelligent person. I pick things up easily. I think things through. I can figure out solutions to difficult problems. I'm not a genius or anything. Just not dumb. Not just not dumb, but... I am smart. Not overly educated (though I wish I were, and I suppose that says something) but smart enough, street-wise. I guess.
Anyway, I'm not dumb. But sometimes I make some dumb decisions.
In fact, I've made several.
I want a clean slate. Forgive and forget. Move forward. Let go.
The question is, can I do this? Starting with myself? And can others do the same? I suppose the only one who really matters right now has already done so. But what of everyone else? And myself? I suppose that's really the most important part. Can I forgive myself? And get over everything that has happened as a direct result of my actions?
