From Oxford Dictionary:
a feeling of sadness, repentance, or disappointment over something that has happened or been done:
I have many regrets. My biggest problem is not that I made the choices I made, but that I look back often on those decisions. Too often. I can’t seem to let go.
Choices were made, outcomes were outcomes, and there is simply nothing I can do about it. It doesn’t stop me from replaying things in mind though.
I think I believe that the choices I made were the wrong ones, and the other option was the right one. When in reality, I really don’t know. Either choice could of lead me to where I am, which is thinking about the choice I didn’t make.
The problem with regret is how you let it affect you. Letting go isn’t easy for me, so I find myself replaying things in my mind. Its no use, it won’t change anything, but there are times when I can’t seem to help myself.
Chalking things up to a learning experience is obvious, putting it into practice is the hard part.
