Getting it Wrong

I am surrounded by reminders of the mistakes I have made.
If I lived by myself I would hide from them, pretend they
didn't happen. But I live with someone who is ruthlessly
honest and won't let me get away with self deception.

Three years ago we moved from a large house on the south
coast to a small one in the Midlands. This was partly to
get away from the influence of my family. But before we
went, when it would have been possible to draw back, he
said 'don't do it'. I didn't listen and now have to bear
the consequences.
