I Think I Made A Big Mistake

I think I made a big mistake.  Have you ever said those words?  Has anybody ever said them to you? About three years ago someone I love said those words to me.  I won’t go into the details but this person made a complete life changing decision and in the middle of that decision the words “I think I made a big mistake” were said to me.  When I asked for clarification I didn’t really receive any clear answer and this person carried out...
