Do you regret?

Are you a regretful person? Do you always think back and want to change things, or think you could have done it better?
My partner is a regretful person, and it drives me mental, because i'm not at all. To me, once it's over it's over, no point dwelling on it, and if I screwed up, well, I better not do it again. I definitely look forward rather than backwards.

Usually no....however sometimes I speak before I think of consequences and then some regrets come to play.
I would love to live by "no regrets", but being human makes me feel bad for some things I have said/done

There are lots of things I would do differently with the knowledge I now have but there is only one thing I regret

We all feel regret. It's how we deal with the regret that makes the difference.
You can dwell on it or move on and look at it as a learning curve.

In my relationship I am like your partner, and my DF is like you. I drive him up the wall but I just can't seem to forgive myself for some decisions I have made, or situations I have found myself in even if they weren't my fault. It's really doesn't make you feel very good! Wish I could look at things as a lesson learnt but when they impact my every day life to this day I find it hard!
Maybe I should just suck it up and get the hell over it

i regret one thing in my life but if i could go back knowing what i know now i doubt id change a thing otherwise i might not have my beautiful boy. if i could go back without knowing everything i do now i would probably have made a different decision

Regret and what ifs are a normal part of any person I think. I know for me I have regret, but you can learn from regret I think.

I have a few regrets or things I would have done differently knowing the consquences but over all I am more like you kelby. I tend to move on and learn from past errors rather than beat myself up.

It's so easy in retrospect to look back and 'regret' or realise that things could have been done differently but the past is the past, and moving on is literlaly the way forward. There is no point dwelling on the past and regreting actions that were made.
I look at past decisions not as regrets but as the best decisions that I had made at that time.

There are a few major things that i regret, and sometimes dwell on. Some days it takes over and i feel like cr*p thinking about how i could have done certain things differently.
So yes, unfortunately i am a regretful person

I've got a few regrets but they're in the past and there is really no point dwelling on them. That doesn't mean that I don't dwell on things sometimes....but I know that I shouldn't.

Not at all. The few things I do regret have brought me to the life I'm at now. And I love that.

And I love thatThat's exactly the way I look at things-meanwhile, D is saying 'Oh, but if we hadn't sold our Queenslander, then maybe.......' and I have to remind him of WHY we did it, he looks back with rose-tinted glasses.

Every choice I have made whether it be good or bad has brought me to where I am now, and made me the person I am today, so I have no regrets.
There are things that have happened to me that I could have done without, but I learn from it and hopefully grow from my experiences.

My only regrets are where I've hurt someone or let them down.. all you can do is grow and move on.
