Popular wisdom says regretting anything is a waste of time. It says smart, strong, forward thinking women shouldn’t have any regrets. Having regrets means wasting time and energy on something that happened in the past, when time would be best served focusing on the future.
The dictionary defines regret as: to feel sorry, disappointed, or distressed about; to remember with a feeling of loss or sorrow; to mourn. So the question is, if you never regret anything, what stops you from making the same mistakes over and over again? Isn’t regretting that bad choice or misguided decision the very thing that allows you to do things differently in the future?
