DailyBlog: A Chance I Wish That I’d Taken

*** The first three books in my six-part dystopian series have officially made their way out into the world! Check them out!
For the sake of blogging, self-exploration, and contemplation, I’ve been slowly making my way through answering questions from this list

Today’s Question:  What chances do you wish you had taken?

When I was twenty-two I was crazy in love, and that relationship blew up so badly that it changed and scarred me for life. But prior to that, from 19 to 21, I had a good friend whom I had developed feelings for. Although we were close friends, I was too scared to risk our friendship by telling him how I felt. Mutual friends however were very aware that we both had feelings for each other and eventually persuaded us both to actually admit it, but by the time we finally got around to talking about it, he ended up with a job offer that would take him hours away and neither of us were really willing to start a relationship long distance. Our lives took us in different directions and we eventually lost contact. I wish I would have spoken up sooner than I did. Maybe if we’d started dating sooner, things would have turned out differently and I never even would have met the person who broke me beyond repair. Maybe he wouldn’t have taken that job offer or maybe we’d have been more willing to try and make a long distance relationship work until we could figure out longterm plans. I try very hard not to have regrets because I find them to be extremely pointless, but since this was a direct question, I admit that I sometimes wish that I had taken a chance on that guy. I wish I’d maybe fought harder to pursue something with him instead of just letting it all slip away without even trying. There’s plenty of times when I find myself extremely grateful that I’ve guarded myself, but that isn’t one of them.
