At some point, we regret certain things in our lives. What we regret and what actually happens determines how we go about life. Some regrets are comical while others are more serious. Comical regrets can mean things like missing an episode of a TV show or not attending a certain entertainment event. More serious regrets can mean not being able to be a good parent or regretting getting involved in drugs, alcohol, prostitution, and the like. This blog post is a look at regrets- both having them and living with them.

The most important thing to remember about regrets is that we all regret something at some point of our lives. The key here is on how you take certain regrets. Does a regret take you over so much to where you feel like each day feels like you are one step closer to death? Do you regret something to where you do not feel adequate or capable of living happily and healthy? If you feel like life is bringing you down because of something you've regret in your life, you just need to establish peace of mind and some sort of happiness. You need to be at peace with yourself and give yourself some confidence. It may be tough, but it is doable. Life does not end just because something bad happens to you and that you can't work to make things better. I always say that every day is a chance to make yourself better than the day before. So always work to make yourself better even if with a small improvement.

It is perfectly fine to regret things in life. This sort of behavior shows you are mindful of certain things you do or have happened to you. It shows compassion you have for others and that you don't want to hurt them in any such way. And if you do feel like you have hurt someone, you regret having to do so. In regards to personal regrets, at least you show there are things you wish could change for yourself in making yourself better.

Everyone has regrets about things in life, whether big or small. How you accept and acknowledge these regrets make us better people in the long run. All you can do is move on with most things you regret. Just try to make the next day better and try to live as best of a life as you can.
