Honestly, nothing can turn thoses ever winding clocks back. Yes I have done several things in the past that I would love to change, because of people I have hurt, or wrong decisions I have made. In the end, the only thing that we have control of is the future. First thing you should do is to Forgive yourself. Why? If you can not forgive yourself how can you expect someone else to do it. Next would be to see if there would be something you could do to change the future. Have to remember with every action there is a reaction. Think through your next steps before acting on them. Ask yourself will this really help the person that I (meaning you) hurt, or is it just something that I want to do to make myself feel better regardless of the outcome. The other thing to think about is truth is real, and it hurts sometimes to come clean. The future is uncertain, mistakes happen, it is what we learn from the mistakes that make us stronger. Life path is never paved for us, we have to pave it as we go..and people will get hurt, its just your decision to make if it is worth it.

I could regret a lot of things and never get to the end of it. I do not think back and regret anything. I do try to learn from the things that have passed. Cheers!!

We really cannot undo what's been done--this is a sad fact. But this does not mean that we have to live all our lives in regret, it's not fair to do that. We just need to learn from our mistakes and be positive about things and everything will come back into places, believe me. Just keep your hopes high and pray always.

IMO everything happens for a reason....changing anything from the past (assuming you could go back in time and do so) would change everything now....why do that? Even the not so pleasant things we've done and experienced has its good points..figure out what they are, learn from those times..thats why they happen
