“Dead people receive more flowers than the living ones because regret is stronger than gratitude” Anne Frank
My friend is it not an ugly truth in our life?
Ironically we value the people after they are gone!
We never love the person when this person is alive maybe because of jealousy or egoistic nature, hatred, misunderstanding, presumptions, assumptions and one can talk of plenty of other reasons.
Nowadays it has become a fashion to express regret loudly without doing any corrections and forget things in the next minute. After all, life has to move on!
We also come across mentalities, where somebody wishes that ‘It’s better if so and so dies’!. What a cruel world!!
It’s said, even if you don’t wish to regret…still you regret at the subconscious level and there is no escape!
Is regretting a good thing or a bad thing?
It depends on what you are regretting.
Regret can result either from…you doing something or not doing something.
My friend’, regret’ is good for the time being. It’s good to realize where things did go wrong. But there is no need to continue the guilt.
It’s said we regret our missed opportunity more than our bad decisions.
“Regret is counterproductive. It’s looking back on a past that you can’t change. Questioning things as they occur can prevent regret in the future.” Colleen Hoover
☑️Nothing wrong with regretting.
☑️Don’t suppress your feelings and at the same time take corrective measures.
☑️You start forgiving yourself and start living ‘the moment’ and move on my friend.
☑️Stop fighting with your family members! Never hate them!
“No regrets in life. Just lessons learned” Unknown
