We regret the decisions we make because we think we should have done something better but didn’t.
We regret these decisions, which are in the past and can’t be changed because we compare them to an ideal path that we think we should have taken.
We have a hard time not thinking about a bad choice because of how it conflicts with our self-identity.
Maybe we made a bad choice and this bad choice conflicts with our idea that we’re a good person. So the problem spins around and around, without resolution.
Let go of the ideals, and embrace reality.
This is a constant practice, but it helps us not constantly review past choices, but instead find satisfaction in what we’ve done and focus in what we’re doing now.
