Stop Regretting and Forgive Yourself

Have you ever done something that made you regret so much? Like committing a mistake where everybody got affected, or not doing something you should’ve done or doing something you shouldn’t?

Sometimes we feel so bad about it we keep on beating ourselves. We keep on going back to that moment and keep on cursing, beating and blaming ourselves for what happened.

Sometimes we put the blame on other people. We can’t accept that we are the only one’s to blame so we find fault on others too.

Do that all day, all year or all your life, but in the end it would get you nowhere.

Regretting and repenting over something you’ve done is good, in the sense that you acknowledge you’ve done something wrong and you’re sorry for it.

But sometimes we tend to just be stuck on that. Maybe what we did was something irreversible or something so serious, everything and everyone got affected. Or worst we became the victims of our own actions, and it’s nobody’s fault but ours. So we put our every energy in blaming ourselves.

But as I said, it would get you nowhere, if anything it will just leave you feeling worst. So take some time to really address the issue.

We’ve already done it, it’s over. We can’t turn back time even if we want to, So try to accept it, and let go.

Second, learn from it. Try to gel all the things you can learn from that experience and remember what you learn with your heart, so next time you know what to do.

And of course, forgive yourself. Don’t be too hard on yourself. You deserve a second chance.

Everybody makes mistakes. Everyone has regrets in life. What is important is that we keep moving forward. Don’t get stuck in that moment, you won’t know what beauty lies ahead.

So, stop regretting, forgive yourself, keep hope and move forward in life. :)
