On regret

"Never regret. If it's good, it's wonderful. If it's bad, it's experience."

Thanks Carmi for posting, just right when I needed it most!

.....or maybe when we feel a sense of regret, instead of telling ourselves it is wrong to feel that way, we see the emotion as a messenger to re-visit, re-evaluate and then forgive. Its the only way to truly let go of regret which ultimately will lead to resentment and then we're in REAL trouble!!!! :)

"Regrets... I've had a few..."

I think Awareness has a good point. It's unhealthy to be ruled by regret, but I don't want to ignore it, either. I'm trying to use these kinds of feelings as healthy learning experiences.

Anyone who says they have no regrets is either not being forthright or simpluy not trying hard enough. Exceptions...Mother Teresa..Gandhi
