The fact is that we all make hundreds of important decisions every day, to waste time dwelling about a single one is simply crazy. Certainly, the one decision you dwell over seems more important than any other but that’s just the way your life and mind have chosen to frame it, that decision is no more important than your decision to study a particular career, or move to that city or leave that job or end that relationship. Time spent considering ‘what if’ is time wasted, better it were spent on ‘what now?’ or ‘where next?. If you truly can not defeat your guilt you will wallow in it, leading to regret.
Regret is cancer, the unrighteous manifestation of masochism. Where blame and guilt have been left untended, regret grows. Regret is the least positive and least constructive force in the world. Regret alters the way you think, feel and interact. Regret can become your master when you should be its’. Regret is literally your past consuming your past and potentially your future, I can imagine nothing scarier than the little time I am given being eroded by a past mistake or mistakes.
If you truly feel regret, address it, remember that is was born of guilt or blame and eradicate them from your life. If you truly value your future, you have to daily face your regrets rather than letting them slowly corrode you until you no longer have the strength to fight them.
Thank you for watching,
