Or would you do everything the same? Does looking at such instances in retrospect inform the way you live your life today?

Good for you! And congrats on the family (to be). Very awesome to feel good about the choices you've made. :-)
I also recognize times when I could have been more compassionate in listening to and responding to others. I will probably spend the rest of my life, maybe more, trying to make up for that.
Thanks for sharing. Its amazing what we see in retrospect. The good thing is its never too late to take those things and apply them! I wish you the best in listening and responding-don't be too hard on yourself. We often are not taught that well.
Hey--its never too late!!! Pick it up again! :-)
Would you say that having kids at 30 has its positive benefits? My mom had us young and sometimes wishes she could have waited until she was more mature.
I know in my case it was a good thing. I was so much more mature and ready to put the child first. I was much more patient and settled than I would have been 10 years earlier. So for me It did have positive benefits.
I hear you--I've made some impulsive emotionally-based choices in my past--usually didn't turn out so well. I'm glad that you have the insight to look back and recognize patterns--that's one of the best ways to create a better present and future!
