Regret is such a weighty feeling to carry around and can almost feel like a burden on your shoulders – trust me, I know. I carried so much regret around with me for YEARS! I was constantly on a mission to love myself more but I was missing a trick – I couldn’t forgive myself for all the mistakes I had made, for all the 'failures' in my life, that I couldn’t see past the regret. It took me years to get to a point where I finally started to realise where I had gone wrong.
Regret can really hold you back in life:
It doesn’t matter which direction or angle regret is hitting you at, it will always hit you just as hard and stop you from living the life you dream of. That’s why it’s so important to let it go.
It is such a heavy burden to carry around that it holds you back.
Regret is a fear of failing in some way or that you have already failed – it’s disappointment, sadness and hurt all rolled into one. But what if there was no such thing as failure? How much freedom would you have then to do all those things you want to do?
Life is like one long experiment. It’s an experiment to find out what you love and what works for you so when things don’t go quite to plan, they’re not necessarily failures, just learning experiences and opportunities to grow. It’s all part of the experiment.
Regret doesn’t serve you, it holds you back. It creates unnecessary fear and hurt that you need to let go. Let go of the past, there’s nothing you can change about it but what you can change is your future! So let go of regret and create the most amazing future you can dream of!
