A collection of thoughts, however they manifest; in pictures, in writings, in verse, in paint.
I have a lot to say, just very little verbally.
I recently read in a book about how we should never look at the past with regrets. Sure, a ton of not so great things might have happened, but every sinlge thing came with a reason and purpose… I guess its a really optimistic way of looking at things but I challange it a bit… Please hear (read) me out, maybe I’ll make sense… Maybe. I can’t help look at the past with regrets. People who I have hurt, people that hurt me… Relationships I should have worked on and relationships that should have never even started… But how I look at now is with acceptance, which I think its a little different.
I’ve made lots of mistakes in the past, passed judgements, etc. I also received a lot of judgements too and got hurt by people close and dear to me. And even though its a shame that it all happened (this is the regret part) , I learned & grew from all of it. I learned from my mistakes. By regreting and accepting my mistakes, I learned what I should do in the future. So, I think that past of the process IS regreting what you did… Hey, if you can fix, great! … and if you can’t, its not so bad either. The past cannot be undone, but it can certainly shape your future…
By all means, I don’t think “looking at the past without regrets” is a bad message, but I think that if you can’t help but regrets some things you did do, look at it with acceptance as well. Regret it but also accept it and work on it so you may never do it again… Does this make sense?
