Taking decisions in our life is matter of choice. And by choice it means we have options at hand to take which path we will chose. In every decision(s) that we have we are responsible for the outcome.There are times that we dig out the issues before making a crucial decision. There are times too that we make decisions spontaneously brought about by our emotions. However, whether we decide on a well planned basis or spontaneous, result such as regrets is always seen at the end. What is important in our life is that we tried our best but maybe it was not good enough. Have did you overcome "regrets" knowing you have tried your best already?

There's no other way but to move on. Whenever I regret something, it stays in my mind because I used to be a perfectionist. Realizing this, I have to consciously divert my attention to the present because if not, I'd just remain there regretting. However,a box of chocolates could help me move on faster.

I think that regret always comes later. There are instances where you feel as though like you are making a wrong decision before doing things but you still do it. I don't think that is considered as a regret, I think it is more of a 'instinct'. You know it's wrong but you still continue to do it.

We all experience regret because we make decisions and do things from time to time. It is always part of it. What is important is you try to see the bright side of things. Remember that there is no good or bad decision. All things happen for a reason. Perhaps, for something great to happen ahead.

Regret always comes later because you will later know what is the outcome of your decision. But whatever the result good or bad, don't regret too much. There is always a solution to a problem. If there is no solution then it is not a problem. Just remember this, Don't make decisions when you are extremely happy or sad. Extremes of emotions can affect your decision making.

Regret is something that I hate to deal with so I always try my best. My level of hate for regret is so high for example, I might go into a store and buy something and then come out wishing I would have gotten something different. But I do believe the regret comes after. What is crazy is that people know that regret is going to come after and they do it anyways.

I can say YES! regrets come after a major decision that turns out not well. and there are times that i can say that i do feel it also. But after sometime i do check things right which seems to be the outcome and the consequences of what i did. and because of that acceptance is the key to overcome the regret we have.

I stay optimistic. I think that is very important when you have problems going through. Well, I believe regret comes after. We regret the things which must have been done. We regret all the mistakes we made. We tend to regret because of the happenings which did not end well. To overcome this, we must learn from all the things that happened. We must realize that it is part of life.

I have learned not to regret for my choices. Even if I do a mistake, or don't take the right decisions, I learn from that and I get better for the next steps in my life. They say that if you don't make mistakes you don't learn what's right and wrong. So for everything that has happened in my life so far, even if it didn't have the outcome that I wanted, it gave me something positive: experience.
