If only, you could go back. If only you’d known then what you know now.Why hadn’t you done more? Why had you thought there was time? If only, if only it wasn’t your fault.
It had started out so beautifully. Life had been so full of promise.
And then somewhere along the way dreams morphed into nightmares. One thing didn’t add up to the next. With awareness came conflict. Oh, how you hated fighting. The arguments defined that season. Maybe you over reacted? You hadn’t been prepared for the lies and denial. You should have done whatever it took. You should have known it wasn’t okay, you should have done more. But you had believed. You had believed it would all work out, that you’d get through it that things would change and get better- sooner. If only it wasn’t your fault. If only you’d done more, back when you could.
You couldn’t go back.
You couldn’t change what happened. What if this guilt was keeping you from what you could do, now? What if what you knew, now- could help someone else, someone like you, someone like…What if it wasn’t too late? What might be possible if you were free from the question, “What if it wasn’t my fault?”
Maybe it was time for forgiveness? Maybe it was time, to do what you could; now that you knew- what you knew?
What If It Wasn’t Your Fault? Loss
