Letting Go of Regret

posted by Guy Finley

Question: How can I move beyond a painful regret?

Answer: Events demand decisions. Choices must be made. And we do the best we know how in any given moment. Even so, we often err and choose against ourselves. For a split second we sense our misstep and wish we could put things right, but the momentum of the moment holds us helpless in its tow. Seemingly too late to struggle with what has now been cast, we can only hope tomorrow won’t find us on some unpleasant shore. But in truth, there is no grim tide of events to which we must submit. It’s only our flooding thoughts that carry us along. And we can start life all over any time we’ll remember that nothing real keeps us from standing on solid ground.
