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. Jack Kornfield Letting Go Jack Kornfield Compassion for Self and All Jack Kornfield Forgiveness Meditation
