Such a good line.
It’s a Princess Carolyn line. From Bojack Horseman.
What would I do differently? I’d talk less, smile more. Eat more fresh fruit, drink less– no. No, I wouldn’t. I’d do it all the same, more or less.
I’d probably have most of the same virtues and vices. Still waste lots of time. On people and things.
But maybe…. just maybe…
I could get rid of one thing. Well, a few “one things.”
I wish I didn’t give in to my temptation to be angry in front of someone, the very first time! That’s not who I am. I don’t do anger well. If I don’t do it the first time, I can resist the second time, and the third. I haven’t “broken the seal.”
I wish I could let things go easier.
But maybe I’d do it all the same, but worse.
I have a good life. Who is to say I would have it if I altered my past?
Most of all, I know that I’ll have him. He’ll protect me against anyone who might even try.
My life is happier when I am generous and help, and when I stop worrying about how to be better and simply be better.
Why is that lesson so difficult to learn!
