Regret comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are small like when we do a bad thing for a good reason. Some are bigger like when you let down a friend. Some of us escape the pain of regret by making the right choice. Some of us have little time for regret because we’re looking forward to the future. Sometimes we have to fight to come to terms with the past, and sometimes we bury our regret by promising to change your own ways.
But, our biggest regrets are not for the things we did — but, for the things we didn’t do. Things we didn’t say that could’ve save someone that we care about. Especially when we can see the dark storm that’s headed their way.
Lucas Scott, One Tree Hill

Why is it that when all is said and done, that’s when we face regret? Why is it that when we can’t do anything anymore, when there’s nothing left to do but face facts, that’s when we feel regret?

Why is it that when everything is gone, after saying you have no regrets in life, you finally accept that you regret this.

The biggest form of regret comes from the things we didn’t say or do. What we did say can always be taken back, but what we never did.. Well let’s just say that everybody does deserve a second chance, but not everyone gets one.

But not everything in life is perfect. That’s just not how it works. Regret exists, look it up, it’s in the dictionary. If only it wasn’t.. Then maybe we could all live happily ever after.

This entry isn’t just about “love”. It’s about life. Everything. Whether it’s that project you didn’t pass back in high school which caused you to fail, or that guy you bumped into and was rude to who turned out to be your math instructor.

It’s about thinking and realizing those small details that you could’ve done that would’ve changed something in the future.

If you had just gotten up 5 minutes earlier today then maybe your professor didn’t have to send you to Admissions Office to get a slip where you bumped into this person you hated which totally ruined your day which caused you not to socialize with your friends which made them think you were mad at them which made you annoyed which distracted you through out the day making you fail your English test.

See how one small, tini tiny detail in your life make such an enormous change.

If only — must be the two saddest words in the world.

But that’s the thing about life. No matter how messed up things become, we have to get up and keep moving forward. We can get left behind, get hooked on the past that’s just gonna keep us from getting to something much better.

There’s always that door for us waiting to be opened unquestionably. Everything happens for a reason. We must always remember that.

I don’t believe in “meant to be”. Being “meant to be there” or “mean to do this”. I believe that we’re “supposed to”. Like, “we’re supposed to be there” or “we’re supposed to do this”.

See the difference?

Well, no matter how hard the struggle or difficult the challenge, how high the climb, we have to do it. We have to get there somehow.

Don’t let your mistakes from your past hold you back.

Learn to let go and leave things behind. Learn to accept your mistakes.. Your regrets.

Never forget that life goes on, and so should we.
