"We Can ALWAYS Recover"

Dr. Guterson: the other day I saw a quote that went like this: “Four things you can’t recover - The stone after the throw The word after it’s said The occasion after it’s missed The time after it’s gone.” Any thoughts? Answer: first, thank you for this powerful quote. My thoughts, however, are that recovery is possible. It’s always possible. We all have done things or missed opportunities that we regret, that we feel guilty about. Too many people wallow in their guilt. Then the guilt becomes a form of self involvement. I remember a line from a movie: “Guilt is a great thing”, meaning we can use our guilt as an impetus to make us into a better person. Then the negative becomes a positive. Then we become free and unburdened and happier. So, yes, it’s a nice quote - but one can recover.
