hmm, I truly enjoyed your light dimmer analogy.
I agree, it’s never too late to change your life around. I never regret choices I’ve made that have landed me in bad situations, I’ve just always worked harder to make sure that I don’t wind up in those situations again.
That’s what light and dark comes down to. If you continue to do things you know aren’t right, you will stray down the path of the “dark side”. But it’s never too late to come back to the light. No matter what your past, you can redeem yourself, whether or not other people choose to believe it or not, what matters is that you know you’ve changed for the better, and expressing that confidence will cause other people to realise the change as well. The light you create will spread.
