    And how did you feel when such wrong decision was made?

      I have several times, but it all works out in the end and takes you on a path that maybe I was meant to be on anyways.

      I'm never wrong. I thought that I was once, but I was mistaken!

    I believe I did, by not following my correct career path after University. All has turned out well in the end though.

    So if it turned out well then it must be right!

    Sometimes it takes decades before we realize that a prior decision was wrong. But, with more thought, it may not have been wrong, maybe just not a good one. One theory is that we choose to follow a path that we desire. We may not have wanted it any other way. So in the end, those decisions may not have been wrong at all. Life is complicated.

      Should we just take our wrong decision as that was how God destined it to be?

        Don't take a wrong decision as God destined that to happen. God takes the bad things in our lives and uses them for good. Sometimes it takes awhile to see that good and sometimes we never figure out what it is.

    If I wrote down how many times I had made a wrong decision it would take a hub and a half to fill it! lol!

    Depending on the gravity of my wrong decision, I can feel anything from mild regret to utter despair.

    some wrongs are too deep to amend and all one lives with is a scar a memory that cant bet erased.

    Yes, I was dating a women that was taking care of 4 emotional damage grand kids.  During that time, I got in serious car accident.  She took me to care for me and fell in love.  We married less than 6 months later.  Her oldest daughter moved in as well to help with the kids.  I found that my wife is 95% a grandma than a wife. If I knew how dead this marriage would be, I would have never committed.  I am getting real close to move out a live separately.  I do not desire a divorce, but I just keep living in this "Mad House."  I think that qualify as a gravity issue.

    A million of them, and I make it a point to forget each one. Otherwise, I'll obsess. Sometimes I think I made a mistake and I didn't. So the best thing is not to think at all about making a mistake, at least in my case. Because otherwise I will end up regretting more mistakes than what I really made. The biggest mistake is to habitually obsess. So whether I made that mistake or not, I just forget about it.

    Everyone does. That wrong decision is the best decisions one could make at that crucial point in time. But either-way, thanks to God He made us resilient...

      @ Barack, Yes, there is always room for bouncing back after such were made.

    Ya, it is obvious that we take wrong decisions. I love to take decisions whether wrong or right. I think before I act to the extent of my knowledge and learn a lesson examining after effects. This equip me to take better decisions in future.

    I took a wrong decision recently, and each time I think about this, I felt so bad. I'm yet to bounce back.

      Don't feel bad. This is part of life.

    Don't worry my friend, the world was made on wrong decisions and mistakes. We are not perfect or can wr for tell the future. Just seek forgiveness, hold some meditation, if possible try to make up for it and move on

    I have made my share of mistakes.  I was thrilled when I made them but I moved on

    Hi paradigmsearch-  I agree with u following Louise L hay's advice. She is worth following.  However, personally, I think I should look back on wrong decisions, at least long enough to analyse the why and wherefore that happened.  Only that way, I can avoid repeating my mistake.  Once I have learned the lesson, then it it time to wave it goodbye forever, as you imply here.  What do you think of my method?
