Are there times you wish you could turn back the hands of time to undo some mistakes or relive some moments?
Most times, we wish we could turn back the hands of time to make right our wrongs and make a different decision than the present one. How nice would it be to be given that golden opportunity at life....I bet most persons would grab the chance without thinking twice, oh! I certainly would.
There are those who live with regrets of either things they did or things they did not get to do. Perhaps, the thought of "if I had make a different choice things would have been better". Living with regrets keeps you stuck in a place emotionally, having so many wishes that can't come true because it is a thing of the past.
"I wish I had just said yes to him and let go of my pride...he would be my husband now and I won't be with this cheat"...."If I had listened to my father, I would not be in this mess right now".
The "ifs" you cannot change keeps spinning while you take yourself through the regrets. It is not abnormal to have regrets...we all do at some points but understanding that it has already happened and you cannot do anything to change the past...well, of course you have some sort of a time travel machine to help you travel back in time to undo or change things.
Letting go of those things you can't change and focusing on the ones you can by making better decisions today is more important. One thing about regret is we learn from it...more like learning from yesterday to better your tomorrow. According to a friend...
...remember that all of the things that happen to you, shape you to be the person you are.
Is it possible to live without any regrets?
Well, not sure we can..because life is a learning process, we learn each day. Mistakes are bound to happen, it is inevitable...so also is regret. But then, we can try in the choices or decisions we make today...so as to avoid some costly mistakes that would breed regrets later on.
“We all do things we desperately wish we could undo. Those regrets just become part of who we are, along with everything else. To spend time trying to change that, well, it's like chasing clouds.” – Libba Bray
