There are people that we dated that were wrong for us. There were some that we thought were right at the time and had our heart broken. It can be tempting to think that this was all time wasted in failure but there is another way to look at it.The wrong one is the right one to lead you to the best one.
Therefore a period of inactive "sinning" if used as a learning experience could definitely contribute to the positive person that you are today.And if thou shouldst be cast into the pit, or into the hands of murderers, and the sentence of death passed upon thee; if thou be cast into the deep; if the billowing surge conspire against thee; if fierce winds become thine enemy; if the heavens gather blackness, and all the elements combine to hedge up the way; and above all, if the very jaws of hell shall gape open the mouth wide after thee, know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good.
(This is somewhat how "the tattooed Mormon" tends to approach these reminder from her past)
However..... this is not how most LDS are comfortable viewing "wrong turns". People have very strong opinions about the LoC. They might view this entire framework as an attempt to justify sin. I would therefore be very careful in sharing.
