Sometimes life choices are simply wrong. There's no bad guy, there's no redemption. There's no silver lining that the tough times mattered for some greater good. That hindsight will set one free towards enlightenment. Sometimes people f*ck up. Plain and simple. Jobs, relationships, parenting, facing the mirror. Can't win them all.

If you learned any lessons from your experiences and by your mistakes then you would have made progress for your greater good.

No regret about regrets is unregretably the best way go

Very true but you know it would be nice to not be on the shitty end of the stick just once.
Does that ever happen?

The problem is that some people never learn from their mistakes because they can’t admit that they made any. So they’re doomed to keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again, and will blame everyone but themselves for them.
So you're not the bad guy?

This sounds less like enlightenment and more like a cop out. Truth is you don't want to take any steps to make the right choices that'll lead to any kind of redemption for yourself or restoration for anyone you screwd over along the way. You're certainly not one of the good ones.
Plenty of bad guys

It would be nice if more parents could admit their failures. At least you can acknowledge them here, hopefully it's only the beginning and you can one day let your kids know, they deserve to hear your apology. Much can be saved if people would simply apologize but hey pride, and the harmful cycles keep perpetuating. How many more people will be pulled into those cycles of dysfunction?
