We tend to look at regrets as a negative thing. I mean it doesn’t feel very good to have them. But the worth things we could do about them is pretend they aren’t there.
For the majority of my life I would have said they are bad, but the more I’ve pushed myself into new and uncharted territory, I’m starting to wonder if they could actually be mini blessings in disguise.
Regrets actually help us recoginze what we want, what we don’t want, ways we’d like to improve, and things we want to avoid. A life of no regrets would be a life without growth.
The following video is the moment that I realized the importance of acknowledging y regrets.
Acknowledge your regrets
If you’ve spent your whole life avoiding regrets, like I did, find a way to push yourself a bit more out of your comfort zone. Don’t let the fear of regrets keep you from the growth that’s waiting on the other side.
We aren’t perfect, and life isn’t supposed to be perfect. It is in those imperfect moments that we will find our strength and in whom we can find greater strength.
