Pick Your Poison

Can't tell which is worse: realizing a mistake, even before its uncontrollable repercussions unfold, or one realized years after the fact. Either way, you can't do anything about it: the former, because it's basically attained the "unstoppable force" status; the latter because you're usually so invested in where you are that you can't afford to fix the past mistake that got you there (and, the further displaced from the error, the more firmly entrenched you tend to be).

Ugh. Always best to try to set aside the things that are out of your control. Only way to help keep the bitterness at bay.
