#choose you bad romance blog tour: what things i wish i'd had during my bad romance
They say hindsight is 20/20. At this point in my life, I get to be one of those people that say super-duper helpful things like that. Really though, what good does a phrase like that do? "Oh, you messed up? You did something you regret? Well, at least know you know that you messed up and you regret it. Gee, hindsight really is 20/20!"
I've only had one bad romance in my 25 years. And yep, after it was thankfully over, I had so many people offer helpful tidbits like the one above. Things that, after the fact, were absolutely useless and really just pissed me off. After five years though, I've realized what things I wanted to hear, not just after, but during my bad romance. And more importantly, I've realized what things I could have done to help myself. These things aren't of much help to me at this point, but bad romances happen every day, and you never know who might need to hear what I didn't.
