No regrets vs. Living with regrets
“Here’s the thing: If we have goals, dreams, and we want to do our best, and if we love people and don't want to hurt them or lose them… we should feel pain when things go wrong. The point isn't to live without any regrets, the point is to not hate ourselves for having them…
…regret doesn't remind us that we did badly, it reminds us that we know we can do better.”

This quote came from a Ted Talk I just watched about regret. I’ve recently made it a point to do all of the things I want to do, with no regrets, but this video is all about living with regrets.

I found this perspective rather interesting because when I think of regret my mind automatic jumps to things I should do, not things. Oppositely, I’m sure there are people whose minds work the exact opposite of me on this topic.

Either way, I just wanted to share this video as an encourage meant to anyone who is living with regret. If you're living with regret I recommend you check it out… it provides awesome insight on how to live, cope and ultimately grow with regret.

Great recommendation!
Thank you for the recommendation! I completely agree that we need to let go and not regret having regrets and we must learn to accept that we all do things in life that we look back on and wish that we could change. Dwelling in that just causes depression and holds you back.

Thanks again for the recommendation it really opened my eyes and helped out! :thumbsup:
