The saying ‘No regrets’ gets thrown about all over the place when people do stupid things. Am I the only one who can list a whole load of regrets I have?

I don’t beat myself up about them on a daily basis but I’m certainly not going to march around shouting, ‘No regrets!’ every time I mess up!

I have dated some of the worst men I know of. Big regrets there!

I chose the wrong courses to study at college. Big regrets there too!

I said some things in the heat of the moment I can never take back. More big regrets!

I ate too much pizza and felt sick for 2 hours afterwards. Big regrets!

I’m not going to pretend the choices and the mistakes I’ve made (and will make) aren’t regrettable! But at least I can say I’ve learned from each and every one of them. Eventually.

I can’t guarantee I won’t eat that much pizza in one sitting again, but at least when I start to feel queasy at the thought of one more slice, I won’t be surprised.
