Re: My Biggest Regret....
Regret is an..understandable emotion is this situation. But really, you should cherish the fact that you even had time with him to take for granted. K, now that sounds mean. Let me rephrase that.
You should be happy you were even able to take his presence for granted. You should be happy your father was such a constant in your life up to nine months ago, that you could take him for granted. You know, people don't realize that others don't always get parents that are even there to be taken for granted in the first place.
Really. Your feelings are natural and understandable, but regret won't get you anywhere. Try being thankful for having a parent worth the title of a father. I mean, you can't change the past. If you were in the same situation, you woulda done the same thing. Why? Because you can't predict the future.
There's no shame to be had with your action in that moment.
He loved you, you loved him. Nothing you ever do, did or will do can change that. Never forget that. Because that's all that matters. And no, I don't think that what you did is considered taking someone for granted. Atleast you know your father loved you, and atleast he knew you loved him.
As for the cutting, please get some help. These are serious problems. They deserve to be treated with serious care.
