Why Your Regrets in Life are Actually Valuable

One of the most common things I hear is “I regret that I did ______”.

And while regret is commonly felt after making a big decision in our life, it is often after we make that decision and face the consequences that we learn from it. You are so much wiser now, from what you’ve gone through. You can now take what you have learned the hard way, and inspire others to take a different route.

Instead of living with deep regret, forgive yourself and then share your wisdom with others. It’s okay to make mistakes. But it’s not okay to live a life full of regrets. So if you find yourself comparing to others who have taken a different route, don’t feel regret you didn’t do the same thing.

Regret won’t solve problems but learning from your decisions will.

For example, if you regret taking out massive student loans when you were younger, instead of regretting it, think of it as a big financial lesson that you will never do again. Now you can share this with friends, family, and whoever needs to hear it. If it wasn’t for making the decision to take out loans, how else would you have learned the value of finances?

We can learn a lot from our mistakes.

Mistakes and failures are not bad, as long as we learn from them. Your mindset and how you choose to perceive things will impact your life. Make sure your mindset isn’t held back by strong regrets, and give yourself the peace of mind that you are actually much smarter now than you were before.
