One of the most difficult things to deal with in life is regret. Sometimes something will happen, and you will respond in the wrong way, and for a while thereafter you will wish you had done it differently. But eventually, you accept the experience as a lesson learned and you move on with your life.
This is hardly the worst kind of regret. What could be worse?
The chances you didn’t take. The relationships you were afraid to nurture. The decisions you waited too long to make. The things you didn’t even try when you had the chance. Those important words you left unspoken and deeds you left undone.
The good news is, it’s not too late. You are here breathing, which means you still have a chance to do what you might have done, and be what you might have been. Right now you have an opportunity to write yourself a future free of regret.
