Regret As A Meaningful Emotion

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.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
