Guilt: tells us we did a bad thing which leads us into shame to tell us we are a bad person.
Regret: gives us disappointments but tells us we are smart enough to try again.
The next time you find yourself contemplating your faults you can use regret to find solutions instead of being shackled with the shame guilt chains.
By embracing regrets, you can gain acceptance and self-compassion which are the fertile grounds for personal growth.
Regrets make us seek responsibility for our actions which gives us the freedom to try again.
Regrets invite us to learn from our mistakes and not to be imprisoned with “Iam not good enough.”
