Do you live with regret? Do you have any would've, could've, should've moments making you feel bad about something you did, or maybe didn't do?

Have you ever experienced a moment when it feels like the crumbs your kids or husband keep dropping around the house just keep piling up?

You feel like you're going to lose it, like you just can't take it anymore.

You've reached your breaking point and it's time to walk away.

Sometimes our fear and frustration gets the best of us and we're left with a decision to give in to that fear and frustration or to choose the Godly response. But how do we know what decision is the right one? At what point do we realize we might regret something if we don't make a change?
