Regret is a bitter pill to swallow. Many times for me when a relationship that was important to me ended I would be filled with so many emotions – sadness, despair and regret, to name a few. Why regret? Did I regret ever being in a particular relationship? Never. What’s done is done. People who walk into your life usually have a reason or purpose, even if you don’t realize it at first. Sometimes the ending is so hurtful and painful that you wonder why were you even involved in the first place? How can someone treat another human, whom they supposedly cared about, as if they are garbage to discard? Regret of the relationship may set in.
Life is a series of choices. We choose who we allow into our life. Our choices don’t always work out, but that is how life works. You can either regret your choices and let the past eat away at you or you can swallow that bitter pill of regret and move on. It is not always an easy thing to do, but in the end, forgive yourself and cut yourself some slack. You are not perfect, your choices are not always perfect, but you and only you are in charge of your own destiny. Stand tall, be proud, but most of all be forgiving, of yourself and your choices.
