I’ve already answered this question or one like it, – repeatedly. Is there some perverse need to be redundant, or after this, might we at some time, move on?
Instead of spending time looking at the past to regret what was left done or undone, I find it is far more powerful a thing to look at those ‘mistakes’ and move on. What good does it do to regret or wish to do things over again? The purpose of looking back at all is a matter of educating oneself from personal experience, and there is no better teacher than that. Once learned, it becomes a given that you will be far less likely to fall into the same pitfall once again.
Everything I have ever done served a greater purpose in the end, whether or not I ‘failed’ miserably or not. Without the experience, no doubt I would be entirely unable to manoeuvre around similar obstacles today. Life is like a game of chess. You gain skill at the game only by playing it. Regretting a loss is not useful. You merely learn from it and become a better player next time. Would I change anything differently the second time around?
Most probably not.
