Should’ve, Could’ve, Would’ve

Don’t live your life by these three words. Should’ve, Could’ve, Would’ve. That means you have regrets, and are living by looking backwards.

Yes, I wish I would have made different decisions. But you know what? If I hadn’t made those decisions, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.

You are going to make mistakes. Don’t regret those mistakes, learn from them. Those mistakes are what make you interesting.

I should’ve done blah.

I could’ve done blah.

I would’ve done blah.

Nope. I shouldn’t have, I couldn’t have, and I wouldn’t have. Because then I wouldn’t be me.

I like me, and my mistakes. They are the stories I tell as I get older.

My mistakes prove that I’ve lived my life, not just watched it.
