    What or how do you deal with 'regrets'?

    Personally, I have always tried to live my life without regrets but there this one thing lately that I realize, 'I really regret this or acting this way'. Basically, wished the situation could have happened differently. Any insight, anyone?

    You don't deal with regret when they arise it's to remind you NeVer to do whatever it is again!  Especially if it brought about pain.  Regret is just another word for reminder

    Living with regret blindfolds you from moving forward and seeing the silver lining behind the dark clouds. The more you hold on to regrets the more you become demotivated. As you think of what you could have done right, map out what and what you should have done and take action on them if you still have the chance. If you don't, take it as part of your life experience to guide in future occurrence. However, take time to reflect more before taking actions on issues.

    I dont regret for anything....this is good or bad i dont know, but what i think is......Whatever i did that time was what i could do best according to that situation, and i can consider it as a cost of learning to never do it again...and learning this is very precious......because this is the most amazing quality of human being of not repeating the same mistake again......so i can pay this cost by anything.......so why should i regret.............
    And let.....if i felt that i am regretting for something then i just literally say 'F*#$ off' to those feelings.....lolz

    I really do this, i am not giving a philosophical lecture to you.......try once......it really helps............God bless you... smile

    I try not to dwell on things in the past as they keep me from moving forward.  There are things that I regret - some are choices that I made and some are things that I chose not to do - but all of these things helped shape me into the person that I am now.  I believe that I learned and grew from my bad choices, so they did serve a purpose.  Most of us could play "what if" or "if only" all day but it doesn't accomplish anything.  Going down that road is just depressing.  Look forward to the future instead.

    I'll reflect on what I may have done wrong. After a bit of healthy mourning and reflection, I will apply my conclusion and idea to do better "next time", if there is a next time", to the future and hope that what I might have been able to keep from failing I can keep from failing again.
