“Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Love the ones who don’t just because you can. Believe everything happens for a reason. If u get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life let it. Kiss slowly. Forgive quickly. God never said life would be easy. He just promised it would be worth it.”
This sms I received yesterday in conjunction of “Sister’s Day”. I was so touched when read it. It is indeed all true. As we’re getting older we always seems to think that our life will become shorter n shorter. It could be today or tomorrow we might be taken away by God.
I had a few occasions that I regret so much that I wish I could turn back the clock to mend things. A few times also happened that I should meet a person n I keep delaying it until I receive a call that the person had gone. God knows how I feel n regret at that moment.
There were also times that I’ve hurt somebody’s feelings be it on purpose or unintentionally, the next thing happened was the person walked off from me n having the feeling of resentment thru out the life. I will definitely feel so bad n wish that I could explain n let the person understand why it happened.
As said everything happens for a reason. There are also things happen because u want it to happen. When it turns out as what it’s not expected to be u will carry the regrets, guilt or disappointment on your shoulder.
To me having the regret feeling is not wrong. It shows acceptance of your actions and the effect of them upon yourself and others. If you never regretted your actions/inactions and never showed humility, would you ever truly be at peace with yourself?
Sometimes being naive is great, especially when it means you let go of and forget the things that had upset you so much in the moment. This will teach you to be a better person.
I think I would regret my entire life if I lived it with no regrets.
