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.
