Regrets can make a person feel an unrelenting bitterness like no other emotion. While regrets can help a person to avoid repeating a mistake—if left uncontrolled it can wreak havoc on a person. Hours, days or weeks spent feeling regret for a past mistake is usually counterproductive. It can impede a person from moving on with their life and letting go of the past. So, how can someone dealing with regret cope? Many find that reading and writing poems that deal with their feelings allows them to let go once and for all.
1. Living Life
Personally I feel as if you believe in the (You only live once) concept, you should without question go towards your dreams with a fierce fire and a can-do attitude. It’s only logical to never settle or listen to people who think they know what’s best for you. A lot of the time those same people gave up on their dreams, never discovered it, or intimidated by the fact that you know yours. Having the courage to stand strong and be true to yourself leaves no room for regret.
2. Over Working
Now I’m not saying to don’t work hard towards your life goals because hard work pays off in the long run and the rewards are endless, but over-working can lead to less creative ideas, which leads to stress, which leads to the watering down of your greatest craft. Give yourself time to relax and refocus to the task at hand. Relaxation is one of the greatest inspiration of all time. Indulge as often as allowed.
3. Expressing Yourself
This is one of the hardest things to do especially if you’re a natural loner or fear letting others in your personal circle. This is key to letting others understanding your way, your dreams, your wants and needs. If you don’t express how you feel, then don’t expect others to. Expression is freedom.
Sometimes, we all get caught up in our own lives that we forget the people who were there that made it worthwhile. Keeping friendships is its own reward, especially if it’s with people who genuinely care for you and your dreams. True friends can heal you, make you laugh and give advice for the long run. You can always rekindle bonds with life friends. Keep them, they’re true treasures in this world.
It’s been times when we questioned our own happiness and well-being in life. The cure for happiness is inside of every living being. You know what truly makes you happy and you should just stop thinking so much sometimes and just do it. Don’t drown yourself with “I should’ve ” when you should’ve indulged in “I did’s”. It’s good to daydream and imagine in the wonder of bliss. It can heal your mind and rekindle long-lost passions which its the first step to infinite happiness.
