regret

regret [ri-gret]
1. to feel sorrow or remorse for (an act, fault, disappointment, etc.)
2. to think of with a sense of loss: to regret one's vanished youth.

We all have regrets. Something we wish we didn't do, or something that we WOULD have done. Or maybe we planned on something happening, and it never came through. Leaving us empty - and wondering what we could have done to have made it happen.

That is the worst part about the past. The "what ifs"... and instead of accepting the things the way they turned out, we sometimes dwell on these should haves, could haves... and we become stuck. Usually, this happens when something caused us a lot of emotional turmoil. Something so big, that simply forgetting it seems impossible. Something that changed your life in some way. Just, something.

And instead of moving on. We regret. And it eats at us until we are so broken, and so empty that we just cant really function.

I wish I had awesome advice to offer you all on how to get rid of your regrets. But I can't. I have tried, and tried. And yet, here I am. Regretting things. I wish there was some way to get closure, but I feel like sometimes closure is impossible. No matter how much you get, it really isn't enough. And you just want more. Because for some strange reason, those what ifs still exist.

You can't change what has been done, you can't go back in time and try to change the hurt feelings or mend the broken hearts. All you can do is learn from your mistakes, and hope you never regret anything as much as you do right now.

Random thoughts. No point, really.
