I'm sorry, I misread your post and thought you said you were abusive. My bad.When was I abusive?
I don’t believe in repentance any way. I believe in acting. If you regret something, you say so, apologize, and then change. Repentance to me achieves nothing. But I’m not religious so I cannot say what it would do for others.
Repentance is not an exclusively religious term. It is about changing one's ways. It is about changing behavior.
