Regrets are like an emotional cancer-
they eat your joy and self-confidence.
They grow constantly by making you
focus on the past, and on the “what ifs”, “if I had only”
Guilt and shame are regret’s cancerous cells,
multiplying and growing every day
while stealing one’s inner peace.
Regretful thoughts about the past grow and grow,
until they take over the present.
They kill all freedom to think, feel and make new decisions.
Regrets are emotional shackles
that can only be released
with the practice of “letting go”
and with self-compassion and self-forgiveness.
