Regrets are like poison. They seep into every pore and cause us to become ill in spirit. They cause our mind to question what we’ve done and what we’re doing now. Regrets come at the high price of our peace of mind. Living with regrets is hard, and lonely. You can feel trapped by them, trapped in the past by your mistakes and unable to act in the present because of them. Why not do away with our regrets? Do our regrets make us who we are? Regrets are a part of us, yes, but we cannot allow ourselves to regret and dwell on the past. What is done is done so to say.
You should live life without regret, because the longer you hold on to them, the deeper the poison takes hold of you. Regrets can paralyze you, that is why you should live your life with no regrets. If you live your life with no regrets then you can move forward in life and face new challenges. Don’t make decisions you think you’ll regret. Don’t question every step of your path, because if you do, your regrets will pull you down into the abyss. You can’t regret things that may or may not happen. If you do, you’ll never be able to truly live your life. If you want to be free, you need to decide that you won’t question your decisions and believe in yourself. If you believe in yourself, that you’ll do the right thing, then you are free. Mistakes happen, and we must do what we can to fix our mistakes, but we can’t allow them to immobilize us. If you are bound by regrets, you will never be able to move forward.
What lives in the past stays in the past. We need to look optimistically towards the future. Otherwise we’ll just repeat the cycle of regretting and questioning. Regret is unnecessary and counterproductive. If you let your regrets control you, then you will stay stuck in the past. If you look towards the future, towards your goals however, then you can start on the path of happiness.
We have to be able to forgive ourselves for who we are and what we’ve done. We need to accept who we are and believe in ourselves in order to conquer regret. You cannot allow regret to control your thinking. The mind is extremely powerful, and the more we believe in ourselves, the better and more productive lives we’ll lead.
You can’t fear change. To change is to evolve. You can’t be afraid to try new things because of what you’ve done in the past. We need to think optimistically about our future. A big part of regret is the fear of loss or losing the same thing again. You can’t automatically accept loss as inevitable. Unless you think optimistically and believe in yourself – accept yourself for who you truly are – then you are doomed to repeat your mistakes and complete the cycle of regret.
Accepting who you truly are and everything you regret is the first step towards leading a better life. We need to take our past and use it as a tool to be used to shape our future.
You are not alone. There are people just like you in the world, who understand exactly what you’re going through. The world is an enormous place, with an enormous amount of people. Whenever you feel alone, just know that you have solidarity with others exactly like you. Be who you want to be, and exemplify the individual aspects of the human spirit you want to emulate. Work towards that person, and eventually you will get there.
