In life we’re expected to live and learn. You can’t grow if you don’t make mistakes. While mistakes are needed for us to learn about life and even about ourselves, there are things we should and should not do to ensure we don’t have a life full of regrets.
Yeah, yeah, yeah the saying goes ‘No regrets. Just lessons learned’ but that saying can’t be applied to everything in our lives. And the truth is how many people do you know who consider everything in their lives phenomenal lessons and have never uttered the words “I wish I wouldn’t have…”? Don’t worry I’ll wait.
Some hasty decisions made in the spur of the moment can make for some story-telling, regretful decisions later down the line. Yet at the time ‘down the line’ is the last thing on our minds. If only we would have known then, what we know now, the story may have played out differently.
