I think most people have done things in their past that they wish they hadn't, I certainly know that I have. From what I understand it is best not to dwell on our mistakes but to try and forgive ourselves and move on and progress spiritually and as a person, that Kamma will 'sort out the rest' as it where.

And when I look at it all it was only a few years of my life that I was not doing what was right, and here I am 68 and can say that for 65 years I have not been a bad person, but it is hard letting go.
