“Don’t have regret about regret.”
That sounds ridiculous, and at the same time that was exactly what I meant to say.
You are going to regret something.
Just make sure that what you regret is the mundane, the inconsequential, and the banal.
Don’t regret the things that matter.
Don’t regret family, religion or time.
Let’s knock the things that matter out of the park.
“You will always regret something. You will always disappoint someone. But it isn’t going to be my husband and our boys. It has been, sometimes. But I’m learning. And I’m making things right.”
