Regret is something that everyone experiences regardless of how small or big it is. From choosing your food order to unintentionally hurting someone you care about and respect. We regret things we said to someone and leave things that way. We even regret being rude to other people just because we were having a bad day.

You regret what you said that made your partner break things off or doubt yourself for saying something during a job interview. However, we shouldn’t dwell on things that have happened already for a long period of time.

Sure, if you know that you were wrong and that you hurt someone, own up to it and apologise. But if the result of your action only affects a simple situation such as ordering the wrong cake or ice cream flavour or even forgetting to bring your shoes inside your home just to find out they got stolen the next day.

You can be upset and blame yourself, but then you have to move on. Life goes on. In most scenarios, it’s not the end of the world.

If you are feeling down about something and you regret what happened, perhaps this collection of quotes about regrets will be helpful.
