Your an interesting type Akashic. Sometimes I almost feel like giving you some advice or a warning or something. But I hesitate. Because I rememeber my past and all the mistakes I made on the road. Mistakes which I (surprising) DON'T regret.
I read an absolutely brilliant quote the other day - it went somthing like this: When you reach the end of the road you realise that every step you made to get there was in error.
