The word ‘regret’ means feeling remorse. This word is a very powerful word that sometimes defines a person’s whole life. Regret is a strong feeling that doesn’t easily go away in fact at some points it doesn’t go away at all. Feeling regret about something is not uncommon or unheard of.
Each and every human being at some point in their life has felt regret about one thing or the other. I myself had felt this unpleasant feeling that I am not very fond of. As a matter of fact no person is fond of this unpleasant feeling and yet at some point in their life they have felt it.
However regret with time has turned into a wish that we could have done instead of what we did. This wish is something we always think about and it doesn’t matter that we don’t want to think about it and in our subconscious mind somewhere we are always thinking about it.
Regret is something like I wish I could have handled a situation differently than the way I did in reality. Feeling regret about something that I did is not good at all. In fact, if a person’s life is full of regrets then that person can’t bear himself by thinking about them which impacts the health of that person.
Regret is something that has already occurred in our life and there is no way of going back and correcting it for us.
In my life there are a few situations about which I feel regret and really wish that just somehow I could reverse the time and change what I did. But that is not possible and I have accepted it, well not willingly but as I don’t have a choice but to accept it so I did.
In every person’s life there comes a time when they could have done something better and it does not matter how they handled the situation, there will always be an afterthought about it and it is safe to say that I do have a few situations like that in my life. However there is one thing which I regret the most. I just wish I had enough courage back then to do what I would have done now but at that time I didn’t.
Each and every people have a different definition of love. I have read about it and seen it a thousand times in movies and everything but never really understood it.
I still don’t and that is what I regret about. I once had a chance to understand this beautiful feeling on my own but unfortunately I did not take that chance and because of that till today I haven’t have the luck in experiencing it till today.
Everyone say that love is a beautiful feeling and that everyone deserves to be in love at least once in their whole life and people also say that people get only one chance at everything which makes me wonder that if I have lost my chance to fall in love because of my lack of courage then.
There was a friend in my life who is one of the main reason which made me who I am today. I can proudly say that he was one of my precious people in my life whom I can’t replace ever. However, I am no longer friends with him today because of my stupidity. I will start from the top.
He was my friend who was always there for me whenever I needed and never really asked for anything from me in return. He never asked for anything and because of that I got used to him and up to some extent took him for granted. I am really ashamed of that and regret doing it.
That was the mistake because of which I lost my friend and my only chance to fall in love. He used to understand me so well that he would have understood everything by just looking at me once.
Everything was going fine and yet I never realised that I have taken him for granted. For me I was having an awesome life and never realised the efforts that he put behind so that I can have this awesome life. Then came the fateful day when everything changed.
That day he asked me to meet him. When I reached in the coffee house, he laid his heart out in front of me. I was so stupid that I never saw the signs. I just wished I did because then I would have handled the situation differently.
When I first heard of his proposal, I was shocked and then I declined it quite rudely which I shouldn’t have done at all. After doing that I left. I never realised at that time that what I did. By the time I realised, it was too late and he was gone from my life. I never realised that the way he used to behave was like the way a boyfriend behaves. I do realise it now and I regret it with every breathe I take.
Now I know that the way he loved me, no one can ever love me like that. For him, I was the most important person in his life. He used to get this look in his face each time when he used to see me which reminds me of the way a moon lights up when it sees the sun.
I never realised this fact then but after he left I realised exactly what he did for me. Now I regret everything I did. Now I realise the fact that I could have given him a chance and somewhere, now I feel something for him. I doubt that what I feel for him is love but I can surely say that whatever it is, is something strong because of which I haven’t able to forget it.
It has been a few years since that day but I still remember everything. If I would have handled that situation differently then I have no doubt about the fact that today we would have been the best couple ever. I guess I will never be able to discover this feeling more and will never be able to feel love at that level again. I doubt that in future he will come back to me because it has been years and who knows he may hate me today for what I did. I hate myself for what I did.
Regret is something that is part of a person’s life and I am no different in this case. Without regret a person do not shape the way they are supposed to do. In fact because of the emotion regret, human being matures. I can also say that I have matured because of that incident.
My problem was that it was too late by the time I realised what I did. I wish that others don’t have to go through the same problem that I did. I for sure won’t repeat the same mistake that I once did. I just wish that there was some way by which I could get him back in my life and tell him that I am sorry for what I did.
