Day 27: Do you have any regrets?

Somewhat related to yesterday’s prompt is this question:

Do you have any regrets?

It’s pretty fashionable to say we have no regrets, and that we shouldn’t have any regrets ever, because everything should be a learning experience blah blah blah.

I get that sentiment, it’s fine.

But guess what: I have regrets.

I have done things that I WISH I had not done, and if I had my time over again, I definitely wouldn’t do them.

Do I regret those things?

Hell yeah.

I don’t wanna get to my deathbed, though, and have big life regrets like “I wish I’d written that book” or “I wish I’d spent more time with the people I love.”

Your turn.

Set a timer for 5 minutes, and write about your regrets. Or your feelings about regrets.

Or your rugrats.

Happy writing!
