Don’t let the regrets of life consume youLife is a series of events. Sometimes things happen as per design, and at others some unknown forces take over, jolting us with the unexpected. That is when 'regrets' make a foothold in our lives. We begin dissecting the sequence of events and cursing ourselves for not taking pre-emptive action when the time was right.
Our minds become flooded with thoughts that begin with "what if…", "I should have/have not…", "You/they should have/have not…" It a kneejerk reaction, to what happened, because we want to blame the failure on something.
So far so good, but our regrets must end on a constructive note. Bemoaning our fate and not learning anything from the mistakes that were made, is blocking the path to our success. We should not be consumed by our regrets, instead, should learn from them and move on. Holding on to something that was not meant to be, will only hinder our progress. Put an expiry date on 'regrets' and don't harbour them, as they will only fester into something ugly.
Switch gears from 'what could have been' to what can be achieved. There is a whole lifetime ahead of you. Don't waste it away in regret.
