"Is it better to life a life of regret caused by the unknown in your life, or to live a life of regret caused by answers you may seek out?"
That's a question I came up with and asked myself some time ago. From it I got my current CT: "A life of regret is my only option." As both choices lead to a life of regret.
For humans, regret is a hard thing to ignore or to stop from occurring. It manifests itself everyday, and everybody regrets something, because a life without regret would be the closests humans could get to perfection.
Regret is a simple thing. It is, as defined by dictionary.com, "The act of feeling sorry about something or to feel sorrow or loss." Regret normally is feeling sorry about performing a action or speaking a certain thing.
Some may acknowledge they regret things daily, others might ignore it. Some will even grow to not care anymore, but it will always be there.
For me my life is filled with regret. A large percentage of the time it is over small things, such as saying the wrong thing in front of someone. Despite me being a rathe optimistic person my mind will take any faint bit of negative and quickly exaggerate it to higher extents. This means that, even though saying the wrong thing will normally only cause a small, quick reaction and then disappear, I think about negatives effects it may have on my future, regardless of how large or small the effect is.
All this and a little bit more has made me realize that I'll regret everything I do. Which is true. I regret saying something to my sister earlier. I regret not eating earlier. I regret the small things, and life is made up of small things.
This is all pretty much nonsense. If you read it and would like to comment though, send me a PM. With all my nonsense that I speak daily though, you might regret it.
