In his 30’s (perhaps) David was racked with guilt having bedded another man’s wife and then arranging for the killing of her husband.
In his 40’s Moses was stranded on the backside of a desert, herding goats, on the run from a murder he’d committed.
The examples could multiply.
You are not defined by your present circumstances.
