How many times have you thought in your life ” what if I have done/said something? “, ” what if I didn’t have done/said something? “, ” what if I was/wasn’t somewhere the time I didn’t/did? “
Some ” what if ” are just thoughts of the moment, but there are others that stuck in our minds, torture our lives and influence us radically.
If you could turn back time would you change things? Are there things you’ve done, decisions you’ve made, words you’ve said that you wish you haven’t? Or maybe we have to accept that everything happens for a reason and face the consequences of our past?
It’s absolutely normal to regret about past things. The more painful the consequences of those things are, the more we regret them and get stuck in “what if“.
I totally understand that there are things are impossible to overcome but by getting stucked in the past the only thing we manage is to lose our present and future too. Since we can’t change what happened or what we caused, why not to try hard to build a future learning from our previous mistakes?
The advance of the day? Don’t avoid something being afraid of “ what if “.Learn from the past and build the future with less mistakes.
