I firmly believe this and hold people accountable for their actions. We all make decisions based on our unique life experiences. Sometimes we make mistakes and change our minds. That's life. Understand that you chose something, because of who you were at that specific moment of time. When you admit your mistakes. .. you can then grow as a person.

+Amanda Blain That's very true.Couple of weeks ago I was so pissed up with my job that I wanted to take some leave, but on second thought I continued so that I can take leave when needed, indeed. Now see what happened, I had an accident and for the last 8 days I am home.Doctor advised me to take rest for another week. See what I wanted and how I get it..Ha Ha 🙂

I think regret is usually precisely because we know we did something we wanted to do and it was something we feel now we should have known not to do. If I punch someone in the stomach in a fit of rage, should I NOT regret that error?

Not sure I agree entirely! Certain medical conditions can make one more indecisive and impulsive! It may be the case that decisions are made based on feelings that can swap and change back and forth frequently and regardless of foresight!

Additionally, our physiological systems have had a much longer time to evolve, than our cognitive ability and our capacity to think abstractly! So it makes more sense that we might react to a situation based on a chemical impulse, rather than considering it logically!

Well said. Do I have something to add? No, because I'll end up wanting to say something different. Plus, my phone might auto correct my typing and that could turn out bad.

If the "-1" existed, it would be appropriate for this post. Should people who cheat, lie, commit crimes, take advantage of others to get ahead, etc. never regret their actions b/c that's who they were at that time and that's what they wanted to do?

Sometimes we are compelled to do something that we dont want to do.. so after that, we regret our weakness, that we were actually convinced to do that.

I agree! You make your decision to the best of your ability with the info you have at hand…no regrets!!!

Can't agree, you should feel regret as long as it forces some feedback of self realization it should help you improve and grow as a person. I don't think you should dwell on regret, and spend your life in self loathing regretting past decisions but to say never regret anything is just an empty slogan…

I really doubt anyone "really wanted" to commit manslaughter running over someones loved one. I do doubt they wanted to commit the act of manslaughter, however. I then would say that they regret the act of speeding/driving drunk, etc.  Not to be a downer but I believe regret prevents/aims to stop us from preventing the same mistakes twice?

I agree!  You shouldn't dwell on your mistakes. Acknowledge them, admit them to those whom your mistakes have hurt, and move on.  That's the process of regretting.

I like this idea somewhat, but in reality, there are times where people do things and that is extremely far away from what they wanted.

And no people do whatever when they wanted. Bad, crimes, and cheating. Their brain said do this now. Regretting does nothing. Admitting fault and moving on does. Why are some of you bringing up illness as a result of how this is "not true". You don't choose illnesses people… ugh.

People may have done what they wanted, but it wasn't exactly what they wanted to do at the time. At face value it may have been just that. However, no one should dwell on their regrets to the point to where they forget to live. That would be bad.

Regret is a good thing if it prevents me from making the same mistake. Constantly dwelling on a mistake is what holds a person back. Living in the past is like being dead. I tend to be cryptic. I know what I mean, but putting it in to words is another thing.

Chris Jones

  I couldn't say it any better myself. I have often times had great, deep thoughts. My problem comes when I try to put them into words. Like there is a barrier between my brain and the words of man.

I do think it's a little more complicated than this. I, for one, have done a lot things in the past that I really didn't want to do, even at the time. But having said that, I actually agree with you, the idea of regret or dwelling on the past is as futile as it's human. But I also believe that regret, when it flares up, is a good thing: tells you that you've grown and developed since the time you now regret!

Paul Hartzer

 Yep, exactly. Maybe people in this item have differing definitions of "regret"? For me, if I feel bad about something I've done five minutes after I've done it, and use that "feeling bad" as a motivation to make amends, that's regret. So, yes, is thinking about that thing I did twenty years ago, that I can't do anything about, that I can't fix, that doesn't affect me in the here-and-now, and THAT sort of regret is just plain pointless. But the first kind? I don't even see how someone could feel motivated to make amends if they don't feel some regret.
