"What is dead may never die."

What is dead may never die.” the words of House Greyjoy. For those of you that haven’t read George R R Martin’s ‘A song of Ice and Fire’ series, it is a line from the book. Period.

All it takes is one word, a simple act, a minor reaction to end it all. Everything that you built from endless hours of labour. It is the easiest thing to lose it all.

Every time you make a mistake, you regret it later. Don’t. It seemed necessary at the time. If it did seem necessary, it must have been so. Regretting what you’ve done in the past is going to bring you nothing but grief. It is done.

It may seem to be an absolutely stupid thing now, but it wasn’t when you did it. When you did it, it was the best thing you could have done. So, why look upon it with sadness? It isn’t going to change things. Trust yourself.

Believe in yourself. Even when you were at your most impulsive, you had the power of reasoning. Albeit a little less, you still did. Trust that fact that you used that power. You will never be able to put yourself in the same situation.

The consequences of that action are the only things that are going to stick with you. They’re the only things left to remind you of what you did. If they make you feel bad, remember, you did it for a reason.

That reason may seem hazy to you know, just like the consequences of the action seemed then.

But, it is done. And, you will have to live with it. Might as well do it without regret.

“What is dead may never die, but rises again, harder and stronger.”
