Know that your feelings are completely valid, always. Your emotions are your own, and they're important because they're important to you. You have the right to feel whatever emotions you feel at any given time. And you're not wrong for feeling a certain way.
If we become too engrossed in the past, it can have a detrimental impact on our present and future lives. Reference the past for knowledge gained and lessons learned, but don't live in it. The simple truth is the past is in the past; we can't change what's already happened, no matter how we try. But, you still have a whole life ahead of you to focus on and build.
Do something nice for yourself today. It could be picking up a coffee, shopping for yourself, or just taking a few minutes out of the day to relax. The important part is it makes you feel happy and rewarded.
Being flawed and human, we all make mistakes from time to time. Part of being human is making mistakes, learning from them, and growing as a person. It's perfectly okay to make mistakes or to stumble and fall. The important takeaway from mistakes is that we acknowledge them, learn from them, and use that gained knowledge to better ourselves. Remember, there's nothing wrong with making a mistake sometimes; but, we should do our best to improve ourselves through them.
Happy Father's Day to all the dads, adoptive dads, father figures, and fur baby fathers!!!

I hope you have a wonderful day full of joy!!
