All negative emotions have their root in fear. Jealousy, anger, envy, guilt and regret are branches of fear only.
The emotion of regret, especially self-regret, can be all-consuming to our minds and destructive to our wellbeing, having the ability to destroy lives. When a person cannot forgive himself, his life is at a standstill.
Regret is a common emotional issue during therapy, and some use it as a safe haven, to protect oneself from the pressure and risks of living a complete life.
Example: People can make an excuse out of a past, regretful event to stay away from love and marriage.
Meaningful regret is when one develops a certain self-awareness, which can be helpful in pinpointing the emotion, and see if it is pointing towards oneself (self-regret) or is a regret towards others.
If the regret is focused on others, it can be a breakthrough which can help the person come out of the negative emotion eventually.
Some people are proud of the fact that they don’t feel regretful. But in reality, this emotion is a rite of passage, which eventually leads to remorse and repair, and that is where maximum self-growth is.
Regret is a message from the soul that needs to be catered to, and which can lead to recovery.
