Dealing with regret

With the weather and a number of sick kids keeping me indoors and out of my self-sufficiency stint for a few weeks, I've had a lot of time to think. Apparently thinking is a dangerous thing and all thinking leads to insanity. If my last two weeks are anything to go by, then that statement has its roots in truth.

I've been doing a lot of introspection and self-evaluation lately. Trying to find the reasons behind the background discontentment in my life. I've been looking at my personality, values, ethics and history for pointers to what drives me.

It has not been pleasant as I've needed to face everything that causes me pain and discomfort, to work through the decisions that I've made in my life and the consequences of those decisions. It has been risky in that the outcome could mean that my life is on a path that is completely at odds with my true nature.
