True, Necessary, Kind

I have done things I shouldn’t have done; I have said things I shouldn’t have said. 

What is done cannot be undone; what is said cannot be unsaid. 

The hurt I have caused needs time for healing; the regret I feel needs time for forgiving.

Meanwhile, I recall Rumi’s advice that is worth heeding: …

Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates: At the first gate, ask yourself, “Is it true?” At the second gate ask, “Is it necessary?” At the third gate ask, “Is it kind?” ~ Rumi
