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