Not A Care In The World

Posted: 30.10.06 in Blogging

I think that those people that say “don’t have regrets” simply don’t have regrets. Or else if they did, they would not say that. They would take a risk, perhaps reach a low-point, then get lucky and come up smiling. They don’t have regrets because it wasn’t their downfall.

So what of those people with regrets? What about people that have made mistakes that cannot be fixed? And what do we think of those that took a gamble in the hope that some good will come of it for everyone, but end up being the root of the problem? Do you turn to them and say “don’t have regrets”? What kind of help is that?

It is akin to telling an alcoholic not to drink. Sure, sometimes it solves the problem. I doubt it works for very many at all, and for the rest you might be lucky not to hear a swear-word pass through their lips.

So if you have regrets, good for you. You have realised you have made a mistake, and you will not do it again. You learn from your errors, whereas these other twits will probably gamble away their love, money and pride on a whim. You can’t change things in the past, that sucks. But you can do something about the future. But where do I start?

    To regret is natural; however to dwell in regret is not productive. This is my opinion. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Adagio.

    Hi Adagio. It’s true that dwelling on them is not really a good thing, but thinking about them long enough to realise that mistakes have been made isn’t a bad thing.

    All in moderation!

    I am with you on this one Steve, if you forget your mistakes you never learn.
