The Regret Trap

We urge others to be of a forgiving nature, then ravage ourselves with recriminations. Left unchecked, our lives can be consumed with regret and that habit produces little of benefit. Consider the variations of Commission and Omission:

  • Done

  • Undone

  • Spoken

  • Unspoken

  • Forgotten

  • Remembered

  • Lost

  • Kept

  • Studied

  • Not studied

  • Emphasized

  • Neglected

  • Believed

  • Scorned

  • Embraced

  • Ignored

  • Succeeded

  • Failed

Once something has happened it cannot be undone, we can only adapt how we deal and manage how we deal with it. But, no matter how much we want too what ever happened cannot be changed...."Such is Life"
