I accidentally deleted the old sec/key, but I was able to import the text file to my keychain,
The problem is it becomes a public key that doesn't belong to me anymore.
I couldn't decrypt thins anymore.
Is there a way I can change this to my own again?

    Hi Tyler,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    This KB-article explains what to do if you forgot your password or lost access to your secret key.

    if you do not have a backup you should revoke your key and create a new key.

    Let us know if you have additional questions after going through that KB.

    All the best,
