Regret vs Revisit

Sometimes I can’t help questioning the decisions I’ve made. Was it the right one? Was it a good one? Would I go the other way if I’ve given it more thought?

Time and time again I’ve asked myself those questions.

Time and time again I can’t give myself the answers that would satisfy my curiosity.

Sometimes I say “yes” to some of the questions. Sometimes I say “no” to all of the questions.

Well, at least I never say “yes” to all of the questions. That must be a good sign. ;)

I often say “never regret the past”. Thing happened the way it did for “some reason”. Saying so, I don’t regret any decisions I’ve made in the past. I just revisit them, analyze them for future reference.

This sounds like I’m preparing to write a “self help” guide. Of course not. I can’t even help myself. -“-

But seriously, regretting the past doesn’t bring any good to the present, let alone the future. However, looking back at the past every once in a while will give you “a second chance” to relive the moment, reevaluate the situation and possibly see an alternative to what you’ve done.

That might prove to be useful in the future if a similar circumstance presents itself. You’ll never know.

One thing, I’m not a big fan of regret. But I like revisiting the past. It reminds me of who I am.
