I try really hard not to have regrets, but there are things in my life that have caused, and still do cause, me great angst and I often wish I had made different choices, said and done things differently. There are people I wish I had never met, things I wish I had never done, decisions I regret making. More importantly, I hate the lingering negative feelings, weeks, months and even years after things have happened. I can’t change the decisions I made in the past, so I try to work on eradicating or at least changing the negative emotions I have in relation to the memories and experiences. That is extremely hard to do. I hate that they can still effect me. Wishing things were different is waste of time. Anger and disappointment about the past is pointless. I just wish I knew how to let go.
