Was it the school you wanted to go to or did you want to join the military?
both i wanted to go to the school and after go into the marines
Unfortunately that chapter is done with, it was out of your control (which makes it even tougher i bet), but you could still join the marines if you wanted. I had dreams of joining the military and joining special forces, but my vision prevented that. Things like that we cant control, its just life.
I tend to avoid regret by learning to not dwell on the past. We all make mistakes but we move forward regardless.
very true but i would have loved to do it
What's done is done. Don't waste time dwelling on the unchangeable.
with you o
Well said Carl. The only part I take exception to is the uselessness of it. Our regrets often are our strongest motivators. I deeply regret some of my decisions and so will not be repeating them. It is only useless if it does not inspire that moving ahead you speak of. Many get stuck in their regrets and give up. Hopefully people in that boat will come to regret that choice in time to make a change for the better.
On the other hand...
I sometimes ponder if it truly is possible to live fully if on occasions risks, well thought out or just plain dumb as hell, aren't taken that, with the blessed gift of hindsight, we do not come to regret.
