R for Regret

Once I told my wise friend that I want to live a life without regrets. He being wise and all immediately shot me down with an answer, “That’s impossible.” Is it?

Berdians Ass! We might not be dumb enough to die over indecisiveness, but it’s a painful truth we are not always presented a choice between the poison and the elixir. Sometimes it’s different shades of poison or even poison disguised as elixir.

If I think about it, it sounds very simple. If I always follow my heart, there would be no Chances for regret. But the funny thing is, heart always doesn’t know what it wants. Or we don’t listen to it. 

Either way, As pain and joy is part of the life, Regret is too. All we can do is make sure it doesn’t drown our life. So set the standards high, maybe we can do the impossible.

Here’s to a life without regret!
