Regret is an innate reaction that happens to all of us. Though we develop this habit subconsciously, if we introspect we’ll understand how devastating it’s effect is. Regret takes us away from practical life and fills our minds with possibilities which doesn’t exist now. The awful feeling that results from regretting is well known to us.
My point here is, do you ever wonder why we regret?
Simple and direct answer would be because at moment it’d feel good to blame on the past rather than to accept the present. As long as one can’t master the art of ‘acceptance’, it isn’t possible to get rid regret. It is sad but true that we have limited control over the external factors affecting our life; there are things we must accept —for we can’t change them. Accepting the part which we can’t change and concentrating on what we can, is sagacity.
There is a famous saying that— Never regret anything, because at one time it was exactly what you wanted.
We are emotional beings, we tend to lose our peace and start the blame game as soon as things get out of our control. That’s the moment when we must resort to reasoning and logic. Even if you had chosen something different, there might have been some other repercussions.
It was our decision and hence it is our responsibility to face the consequences. Facing the results with a bold face is what we can do, or what we must do to make our lives better.Why let this abominable third party named regret get into our business and demolish it?Regrets are what kills humans from inside and makes us believe if we had done differently we’d have achieved a different result, which often makes us perceive ourselves as loser.If you think that becoming a millionaire is the only hardest thing, try living a life without regrets.
Don’t forget to give it a thought and question yourself!
