Regrets...do you have regrets when you remember the past ? Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
...or you just say " Non, je ne regrette rien " ???

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZPXbKoRfIk&feature=related

" No! No regrets
No! I will have no regrets
All the things
That went wrong
For at last I have learned to be strong

No! No regrets
No! I will have no regrets
For the grief doesn't last
It is gone
I've forgotten the past

And the memories I had
I no longer desire
Both the good and the bad
I have flung in a fire
And I feel in my heart
That the seed has been sown
It is something quite new
It's like nothing I've known

No! No regrets
No! I will have no regrets
All the things that went wrong
For at last I have learned to be strong

No! No regrets
No! I will have no regrets
For the seed that is new
It's the love that is growing for you "

..............sometimes, I wonder if regrets are the most valuable lessons for us to learn from, once the "deal is done" and "the piper is paid" and all we seem to have left is, rien de rien - nothing at all.

OP, I think its nice :)

And no I have no regrets, lessons learned yes but no regrets...

As for the other comments above, they should just dry up and go crawl back underneath the rock from which they came.

I have no regrets over the things I do remember from the past but I do regret not remembering some things I used to know in the past

OP, whether or not this thread survives, thanks for that link.
Whoever put that video together did an excellent job.

Now, with respect to your question, I can't say that I have any real regrets when I remember the past. I consider myself to be the sum of all my prior choices, actions and experiences. So, in that sense, to experience regret when I remember the past would be to be uneasy or dissatisfied with who I am today. Furthermore, I believe that if you can learn one thing, take even one lesson away from a situation that might otherwise have been disappointing, then you have come out ahead and have nothing to regret. Not to mention, one should "never regret something that once made you smile".

I regret not realizing how little time there is to have fun before real life sinks in.

I tend to drink more than I should, thus my lack of ability to remember.

I used to regret my mistakes, now I embrace them...for they brought me where I am today and I like where I am today. Maybe if I was unhappy with where I am today, I would still have regrets, but thankfully, that is not the case at all.

No... I have no regrets. If I had done things differently I wouldnt have my four beautiful daughters and my three grandchildren.

So I wouldn't be left with nothing I'd be exactly where I was supposed to be. I think that's where I am.

I regret dating incompatible women.
But not the experience I gained in doing so.

nope, I don't waste my time with regretting anything.

I made the decisions I made at the time for reasons which were reasoned and logical when I made them.

I do not doubt confidence in myself or my decisions- even if things don't always work out as good as I want it to.


I can do NOThiNG to change the past- only use it to mold the future.

Lol, i have them everyday, especially now that I'm back in florida looking like an a%#hole, Everyday I get up I am reminded of what a complete failure I am, and the regrets of the steps i didn't take sooner peppers me like little bees after I messed with their hive. This isn't a romance problem, but a life problem, so i felt i could post in this section.

i regret talking too much and worrying about useless things before my first date, which may have led to her blowing me off at the last moment.

My biggest regrets are having held when I should have sold, or having sold too soon, oh yea, also having screwed it up with the great love of my past life.

I don't know if I regret anything except maybe when I have said something mean in the a long time ago. You can't take back your actions or words; only learn from them. I wouldn't change anything in the past because I learned from my mistakes.

As someone has said they would wouldn't change the past. I agree, neither would I . If you could change the past, you may also change who you are now and others in your life who you have affected like maybe your children, grandkids, SO, friends, etc., you have now.

Sure, I have a few regrets in life. I just don't dwell on them. I learned from them and try not to let it happen again. Such as life.... its not easy sometimes

I purposely make it a point to avoid the creative writing/poetry forums so I don't have to read stuff like this. I'd prefer people keep that stuff where it belongs. Thanks.

That said, yes I have a few regrets - I wish I started college in my 20s instead of my 40s. Sometimes I regret that I miss things I can't get back because I'm a workaholic. I regret not realizing things a lot sooner when I was a kid and being too trusting. I regret bothering with people who were no good for me longer than I should have.

Regrets are what makes us human.

Woman~In~Progress, I didn't know you were in your 40s!!!!
Never looked at your profile cus I just took it for granted you
were in your 20s and too young to waste time browsing you.

Since you can pass for much younger,
I don't think college is too late for you kiddo.

:-P

While I totally believe that brilliance and illumination are things drawn from experience, like a pearl that is abraised before it shows its true light, I still have a few regrets.
I regret spending way too much time being nice and trying to make myself consider partners that were not good for me.
I regret spending way too much time focusing on whether or not someone cared about me, and spending way too little time figuring out what I was feeling.
I regret not asking for what I needed in my youth.
I regret being very busy with my business the last year of my former husbands life.
I am thankful for all that is with in me, and all that lies ahead.

Actually I did a little until
this weekend.

I had a very cruel 15 year relationship
with a very cruel man. I carried alot of
that around for a long time.

I was informed this weekend about something
very grave that happened in his family
nine years ago and has ongoing consequences
to the family.

My partner said I should be gloating.

All I can feel is a sick feeling in the pit of
my stomach for all them.

Karma can be cruel. So now I can let it
go and say I am exactly where I am suppose
to be with whom I am suppose to be with.

No regrets. Actually a couple " thank you god"
and "allelulah" come to mind.
