When we dive into the massive iceberg of the 21st century, we may come across several terminologies such as: “Globalization,” “Internet-Addiction,” “Emotional Surpluses” and etc. Yet, what could this all mean? A common flow of stereotypical words suddenly invade our stage of interpretation.
Partially yes, and partially no. This is the reaction that might help us define what, where, how and when we’re trying to be emotionally stable and hence, bring the term of “Regret” into the house of tea and discussion.
Let us open our minds and hit the breaks!
The point when anyone in-between the ages of consciousness appeals to his or her past, thinking of what possibly could have been done to prevent a certain occasion at a certain time.
Well, just as particularly anything on this planet, regret is both beneficially (the after-math at least) and disadvantageous (obviously).
To make the scenario a bit more transparent, allow me to represent you 2 models:
The moment Human X gets rejected by his new “spotlight” and the moment Human Y does not have enough cash to repair his vehicle.
Now, imagine Human X falls into a short depressive period perhaps and thinks on what to do next. The moment after, he realizes that this might be one of the multiple tests he’s been given to pursue during his lifetime.
This not only brings him motivation to find his destiny and perhaps evaluate the current he has, for the good of the things he may obtain in the future, but also allowed him to define what he might have done wrong during his experience.
Now, Human Y by itself is not in the best situation either. He urgently needs financial aid by explicitly taking into account the vital role his car plays in his everyday life.
So what would they do?
Crying is not the best option, as we all know, of course.
Yet self-realization is the major key that may lead to the common thesis of:
In every chaos there is calculation
This “key” both of them may feel is commonly named as “Regret”.
In other words, Human X would review the points he might have missed or simply considered his current state as the best outcome that could’ve been even worse. Maybe he had something to devote towards on a bigger scale rather than typical ‘drama stories’ not worth his dedication specifically at that period of time.
Human Y, on the other hand, will improve his financing abilities and take into the current circumstance just for the sake of circumventing it in the future.
But in the end they’d think of it as if:
The “I wish I had a time machine” phrase most of all comes after a certain event, just as the two examples I have demonstrated in the very beginning.
And now, at last, I ought to have the right to summarize the thesis and its effects all into one word – regret.
Of course, making mistakes is globally considered to be “a weak representation of your skills in any particular region.” i personally believe this is biased and must be utilized in a far different way. So will I do this with the help of the word “regret.”
Regret is purely negative, yet fully controllable and in fact, even motivates people to consider what they COULD HAVE and WOULD HAVE achieved by the effects of the world and the common consensus of subconsciousness.
We can actually use this factor as a reminder towards ourselves that in case we don’t do the things we ought to do to achieve our goals – we might end up in the situation we are regretting now.
Stay live and always wise,
Never beat your eyes,
With the ashes of demotivation,
Always live and always strive,
With the meaning of night,
But the vision of your sight
