Chess engine analysis

I played this game on lichess just now. I’m not certain how I feel about engine analysis. Sometimes, it can be quite demoralising and other times it can be quite helpful. Maybe chess is just far too complex for humans. Well, I had thought 21. f5 may have just simply blundered a pawn when I made that move. The engine seems to assert this was not one of my inaccuracies. Though it also says I should have gone for the throat at move 51 and gone for the mating attack on the black king. I decided to play conservatively though as my own king was a bit exposed and got queens off the board. Which was still easily winning for white. My opponent resigned at move 69. I’m not certain though why he waited that long. I cannot believe though that I missed a great chance to win his bishop at 60. … Bg8??. Any way, a visual of the game can be found here:

I had white pieces.
