Wrong Decisions and Regrets

by eternaldarkness

Are there decisions you’ve made you wish could be undone? (or done differently)?
Do you have regrets that you still have not gotten over? like for decades?

There’s a few big ones for me that I just have not been able to get over.

What’s done cannot be undone, and what’s not done then cannot really be done now.

I’m sure we’ve all done such things. For me whenever my emotions overrode my logic, that’s when I did things I later regretted. I personally have come to terms with those decisions-so long as I didn’t get in serious trouble, I just chock it up as a learning experience and not to make the same mistake twice.

You have to accept yourself for who you are, the good and the bad and that’s how you improve as a person. I have a close relative who never learns because she thinks she doesn’t make mistakes and when she does she doesn’t admit them or blames them on someone else. She has been very lucky in that she hasn’t gotten in big trouble.

I’m the opposite, I’m much more careful, I’m aware of my flaws/shortcomings and try to keep myself out of risky situations. But even now in my 40s I still occasionally make dumb mistakes that I later regret but they’re usually very small errors.

But I know what you mean, you just have to forgive yourself, accept your misdeeds and move on. It doesn’t help to obsess about it since it prevents you from enjoying your life today.

It’s true what they say, life is short. It might not feel that way but it moves fast. Before you know it you’re in your 20s, then 30s and 40s. In time those regrets won’t matter what matters is that you get to wherever you want to be (say family/kids for example). Don’t let your failures/mistakes bog you down or hold you back.

You’re absolutely right. Sadly many of us i think have developed a personality where it is extremely difficult to let go of our past mistakes…and so the demons continue to surface and drag us back down under the black water.

I constantly battle at the fork in the road that is forgiveness, hope and recovery or alternatively submission, rage and death.

completely in tune with that, particularly the second paragraph

Wish i hadn’t kept to myself as a young boy and twisted my mind in envy and self-hatred

wish i had focused on education

wish i hadnt let go of my will to live to such an extent that i allowed a car to flip on top of me and crush my skeleton into the road

wish i hadnt wasted the past decade locked in my own self-made misery

wish i hadnt made these scars on my arm
