Regretfully, I Am Not

Regret: a feeling of sorrow or remorse for a fault, act, loss, disappointment, etc.

There was a Question that I have asked a couple of my friends over the past couple of weeks, and I almost received the same response of "Yes":

"Do you have any Regrets?"

I have had this question looming in my head for a few years. And in those years, I have seen MANY People do things that they wish that they could do over. I seen them do things that ranged from small and easily avoidable, all the way to where The Devil would say "DAMN! Even I am Not THAT Evil!!!"

I myself, am in the same category of those people where I did some things that I regretted doing. I can list those things.

I Choose Not to divulge that information because I am not an Open Book. And I am Not Sorry for saying that. Why Should I be?

The more I thought about that question I posed to myself and others, the deeper I delved into my mind to figure things out. Aside from discovering several ugly truths, I discovered another item that put things into perspective for me, and I can explain it:

"NO ONE should have Regrets, simply off of the idea that at the time, it was EXACTLY what You Wanted and Wanted to do."

I say this for a few reasons...

One, if people took the time to calculate the Risks and Rewards of their actions, chances are there would be less hurt for the party/parties involved.

Two, Disappointment would be at a low (at least in this category, in my Honest Opinion).

Three, Life would be a little more simpler and easier to get along with.

Naturally, My Blog, My Thoughts, My Opinion. I am sure that there are going to be people that are going to have some words for this, and I welcome them as I always have. We can Agree to Disagree, Disagree to Agree, Agree AND Disagree; it is our Nature, and the Beautiful Relationship with which we Possess as Friends, Family, Colleagues, and Sentient Human Beings.

Will I regret what I wrote here? Not for a Second; not only is THIS what I wanted to do, it is something that I have been meaning to write. At the same time, a stimuli occurred that triggered me to write this out and to say something to the Parties involved:

I Apologize for the Hurt that I have caused and given at that time. I was wrong for what I did, and am wholly embarrassed for doing what I did. Even in making a Public Apology here, I completely understand if there is no reconciliation, or even worse: You see me in a totally different light.

Do I regret what I did? No...

I should have thought it through and made a better decision at the time.

Regret holds you back...An Apology and learning a lesson moves you forward..and since we cannot repeat the past..Why regret it

This is true, it's best to move on. There is no point in dwelling on what has already happened, regret can consume you.
