what if no what ifs?

just like box of chocolates... regrets also comes from different shapes and sizes.
and you'll never know what you'll gonna get :)

i have many regrets... and im sure everyone does.
i am not proud to admit that but i wont be reticent to share.

we all have to face it.
becoming mature means learning to accept what you cannot change...
to face unresolved sorrows and to learn to love life as it really happens...
not as you would have it happen.

it has two sides.
the things that you did and did not do.

mine usually falls on the first what if... those that i did.
what if i did not do this?
how can one decision flip my life in a 360 degree turns?

but i also have some on the things that i didnt.
what if i listened to them?
or what if i followed my heart?

i once entertained the painful feeling of regrets... and i hated it.
self pity kills me... the depression sucks.

they say that there are no regrets in life, just lessons...
but to regret deeply for me, is to live afresh.
to be awakend. to move out from life's perfect expectations.
to leave the shadow of sadness - the legacy of the past.

what ifs in life are not something to be ashamed of. having those doesnt makes you less of a person... beside, it adds up.

it molds you.

struggles are exactly what we need in our life. if we were to go through life without any obstacles, we would be crippled. We would not be as strong as we could have been...

do not be afraid to take risks...
life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

avoiding what ifs is like sitting on the bench without even trying to shoot the ball.
not even knowing how great player you could have been.

what ifs will always be what ifs... unless you do what your heart tells you.

accept the pain.
cherish the joys.
resolve what ifs...

then you can say:
"if i had my life to live again... id do it all the same time."

Very interesting post. I would say that every single one of us has regrets of things we did/did not do. And you're right. Those regrets are part of what makes us the person we are today.

hi flydragon :)

thank you...

somebody asked me why it seems that i still carry the angst of the past, and told her that its not the agony, but all the lessons needs to be shared... for others to learn from it.
