Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret

I found this week’s challenge very difficult. I tried and tried thinking whether there was one moment that I regretted but there is none. I don’t know if I should be thankful for this or does that mean I had a good life in general? “Regret” is largely dependent on how long we dwell on our mistakes and how fast we act to make up for those mistakes. If we make a bad decision, we should not regret, instead we should learn from it and move forward. A lot us remain stagnant in life because we’re too busy regretting what could have been.

The photograph I shared is a picture of UP Diliman’s academic oval. Why did I share it? Because even though I feel that I had a good job in college, I know I could have done better. I also wanted to to explore a lot of things but certain situations prevented me from doing so. But did I regret it? Not really. The personal wants that I sacrificed benefited people I love so I have no qualms.

In the end, it’s all about having a larger and more mature perspective of things. Once we acquire this trait, whether we make a bad decision or not, whether we lead a good life or not, we will never regret the things we’ve done.

  1. Beautiful post for this week’s challenge. so thoughtful. Yes we all learn to move on with life, learning from our mistakes. There is no point about having regrets in life.

  2. You nailed it. I have not yet posted mine. I can’t locate where I had an utter regret. Regret is such a strong word for the mistakes you made. I don’t frown so hard on it.
