Have you ever wished that you can go back in time to fix your mistakes? Are you bothered by the words that you shouldn't have spoken, decisions that lead you to a wrong career or wrong actions that lead to a broken relationship?
Regret is a part of everyone's life. Even kids regret breaking their toys. Sadly, some regrets are more impacting than others because of mistakes that lead to devastating consequences. But one thing's for sure, regardless of the magnitude, we can't live a life of regret.
One of the most common regrets in life is the unspoken words. Words that could have eased your burden or could have healed your relationships. Perhaps pride or fear has held you back from uttering them. Your silence and lack of courage have left you haunted by regret.
You can start overcoming this fear by putting your words into writing. Express the love that you can't verbalize through poetry. Safeguard your true feelings before something unexpected takes place. Make sure that you won't miss the chance to communicate what's truly in your heart.
Never let the mistakes of the past ruin your pursuit of happiness. Acknowledge your shortcomings with humility then make up for your mistakes by pursuing meaningful goals. Reach new heights that will make your family and friends proud. Constantly find ways to reach out to them to mend your broken ties.
Focus on things that make you happy. Think of the many times you've been successful instead of dwelling on some of your failures. Take some time to embark on an adventure and learn to appreciate the little joys in life.
Be thankful for the lessons that your mistakes have taught you. Lessons that helped you become wiser and build your character. Strive to take these little steps until you attain peace and contentment. The key to reaching your freedom from regret is embracing it.
