#30 Regret and Forgiveness

Season #1

Regret and Forgiveness go hand in hand. In this episode we explore how regret is the sadness and disappointment we feel after something has happened that we think we could have managed differently for a better outcome. Regret can be enlightening. We can learn from mistakes. Regret, however, can become debilitating when we obsess over our role in the situation with guilt, sorrow and shame. We seek to atone but it isn’t possible, making us even more restless and unhappy. Forgiveness is a conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness or not.
