Regrets eat at us from the inside. Some people are pragmatic and go through life realistically looking at things. But some of us are torn apart by doubts and regrets. I always think that life gives us one day at a time so that we can correct our mistakes from yesterday, and not live in yesterday, ruing our mistakes.
The few quotes that I have put together in this post are just a few from thousands. The wise and sagacious people have found regrets are futile and there are many excellent quotes to prove that.
There is no arguing with this logic. Live for what you can do or achieve in the next instant in your life, not for what didn’t work or went wrong in the past.
Easier said than done, one might say. But if one thinks logically about it, there is absolutely no use in crying over spilled milk. Go get some more and make some tea!
Regrets lead to wasting precious time. And when we have just that much time in our lives, why waste it. This is my personal philosophy in life. A promise I made to myself when I made my first adult decision. Not to regret what is done. Just move forward from that point. The mistakes we make give us an experience that is very valuable in life.
A very practical way to look at life’s experiences. Relationships are one enormous cause of us feeling regret in life. And as we humans are an emotional species, we tend to carry this regret for a long time. But eventually, we have to throw off this heavy blanket of sentimentality and see the reality. Use the experience that life teaches us and grow positively. Learn from all experiences and relationships in life.
At the end of life, don’t die with the regret that you weren’t brave enough or intuitive enough to take chances or risks.
Regret is a heavy burden. Try to set it down as soon as you can and carry on with your journey. You will go far without this weight on your shoulders.
