How to not regret anything

Regret sucks eh?

When we talk about it it’s often in bad light. It totally sucks cause it probably means you missed on something big or you did something that made you feel less than stellar.

Maybe you went to the wrong party.

Or maybe you took up the wrong profession.

Whatever it is, the feeling sucks balls and makes you feel empty somewhat.

But I think regret has a little trick to it all. It ain’t as bad as you think. It’s all you.

Here’s why and how you can have no regrets

1) When you made that decision at the point of time, you were at your peak of feelings.

That means to say, you were feeling your best and you wouldn’t have gone otherwise anyway

Now, even if you felt 50-50 about something and it didn’t feel the best, it doesn’t matter! Cause you’d done something anyway.

2) There’re lessons to be learnt

Whatever decision you made, however much “regret” you feel, there’re lessons to be learnt.

You may not appreciate the situation yet, but you will in time. And that’s how you grow the fastest.

3) Cause life isn’t that

Whatever decision you make, even you feel bittersweet, sad, upset, angry, remember that life isn’t that bad.

There’s always some good to be found.

You just got to believe life is alright after all.

If you can’t, that’s your own regret speaking.

I’ve been sick for the past month. I was diagnosed with hyperactive thyroid hormones, which basically put my body into overdrive. My body was working so hard on its own for no reason that I suffered from trembling hands, a heart which beat too fast and muscles which became weak on its own.

I’ve lost 5kg and I have to train everything back.

Regrets? Not really.

Life is good. I appreciated the break and all the rest. Most of all, I’m glad I’m strong enough to get over all sorts of shit.

Fuck yeah.

Glad to be back!

    Amen! For a while I regretted mentioning a competitor of ours in a recent meeting with a distributor. We ended up making the decision to not use this distributor and continue self distribution. Within the next MONTH, I see on our competitors Facebook page that they are now working deals with this distributor. Regret? Not really. I know what the distributor charges and we would have had to double our production just to continue bringing in the same among of revenue. So it’s all a matter of perspective.

    Good post, there is no real reason to ever regret anything, whatever has happened, has happened!

    Welcome back! Just found your blog today! Personally I think regret can sometimes be good. In my opinion there are times I wish I did not do what I did. It does not have to be crippling though because what has happened is already in the past. It should simply inform the decisions in the future! And if it does inform the decisions in the future, a regret can be turned into a blessing! I am encouraged by your post not to “cry over spilled milk” but to watch out not to spill the milk again. Thanks once again.
