Of Regrets And Resentments

By Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Regrets and resentments are a part of human nature. These two emotions are so strong they can destroy you from within - undermining the very foundation of self belief. No matter how much we try to run away from them, we certainly can't hide. At some point or the other we are left standing in front of it. But how we deal with these self destroying emotions decide what kind of person we will be in the future.

These regrets and resentments always offer us two directions , and I have decided to choose the forward one. We can try to hold on to them as long as we want but that will only induce more anger and even more hatred. Letting go is probably not an easy option, but it is an effective first step. A first step to being a better person.

A beautiful lady once said - Regrets are the things you actually wanted to do at some point of time. And I think she is absolutely right. You cant undo your mistakes but you can learn from those and choose to move forward.







Hope you have a great day

  1. We learn from our regrets. Holding on is the worst thing to do.. but never experiencing regret is not good either. It feels awesome when you rise above from it.

    1. Letting go is probably the hardest path. But I guess we have to do it at some point or another

  3. Regrets are part of life. .We always end up thinking what could have happened or what might have happened, even though we know the thought is futile we still do.. I guess its part of human nature. .

  4. "Regrets are the things you actually wanted to do at some point of time." So true na and we hardly ever realize this.

  5. I feel that regrets also motivate us in some way to move on to do the things we missed doing in the past.

  7. I agree completely that regrets and resentments hold you back. We have to learn from our mistakes, probably even enjoy them for what vicarious pleasures they gave us, and move ahead :) You live life only once; so you might as well make mistakes!
