Integration of History

Good afternoon dive into mark and metafilter readers.

History is a funny thing. There are bits that we regret, yet those bits are part of who we are. We cannot escape them, since they have by now been integrated into our being. If we wish that they hadn’t happened, we in some way wish that we are not who we are now. We are the integral over time of our experiences.

That’s not to say that there’s no regret. Regret is a wonderful learning tool. As is forgiveness.

To those I have angered, I ask forgiveness. To those who have angered me, you are forgiven. I hope I anger less than half as many of you half as often in the year to come.
