"Don't Regret" by t.A.T.u (Contradictory? Yes.)
's Word Prompt: Regret
's Theme of the Week: Regret
Coincidence? Perhaps, but hey, two birds with one stone!
Lately I've been experiencing regret... Sometimes I look back and think to myself "If only I had done things differently..."
If only I had been honest. If only I had been kinder. If only I had been careful. If only I had been smarter.If only.
But instead of regret, it is best to forgive and forget. Even if someone doesn't deserve your forgiveness, you deserve peace. I, for one, am always longing for peace with those I love and those who hate me. And if they do not want peace...? I won't be distressed; I'll simply move on.
Because dwelling on the past and trying to change what cannot be changed? It only hurts and makes things worse.
Feedback is much appreciated. Enjoy!
