Commonplace Book

I started reading Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead several months ago, and I have never finished it. However, this quote has stuck with me, and I keep revisiting in my thoughts.

People who feel any sort of regret where you are concerned will suppose you are angry, and they will see anger in what you do, even if you’re just quietly going about a life of your own choosing.

Anyone else have that kind of regret?

Anyone else have people they suspect have those feelings toward them?
