What is one thing you regret very badly and cannot change?
"Regret always comes at the end, if it comes at the beginning it's called registration". That's probably a quote that will come to mind when I hear the word "regret".
For me, regretting the past is a waste of time. It can't change anything, only makes the burden on the mind bigger and bigger. Of course, regret is not entirely wrong. Sometimes you need to regret something bad that you have done so that you can change and not do it again in the future. Actually, there are many things that I regret in life, but those things haven't made me down.
So, is there one thing I regret very badly and cannot change?
Hmmm, I don't think so. All the things and life decisions that I made have brought me to be who I am today. I don't consider myself to be the best version of myself, but at least I can accept whatever happens maturely. No tears should be shed for wrong decisions or regrettable failures. I am now stronger to accept these things, maybe because I have been able to accept myself.
Even if I had to answer the question above, perhaps the one thing I regret very badly is the time that has passed. The time I've wasted doing things that are not useful for myself. The time I should use to develop myself or create something. I can't repeat the time that has passed. Sometimes I imagine being able to go back in time with a time machine. But it's just a fantasy, I've made peace with it. After I thought about it, I don't think it needs to be changed because I can still start right now, yeah right now.
