Aiming to Always Progress

“I still have sadness and complicated feelings about my divorce.
But how beneficial is it to keep hanging onto those feelings?
If someone lives through an accident, his aim is to become better and healthy.
My aim is always to progress – to make better decisions and be a better father,
a better boyfriend, a better husband if it happens again.
~ Ryan Phillippe,
Actor
