Steps To Overcome Regret

(This post was originally posted by Emma Johnson in the March 2018 edition of Success Magazine.)

Regrets. We’ve all had a few. In researching how to get over regret, we found three excellent examples of people who did so in such thoughtful, meaningful ways. And there are some general tactics, should you find yourself mired in remorse:

Own up to it.

Accept your responsibility in the negative experience.

Move on.

Let go of what you cannot and could not control.

Apologize.

If you hurt another person—whether intentionally or inadvertently—apologize, mend bridges, or otherwise express how you feel. Then let it go.

Free yourself.

Decide that you deserve to be free from the negative feelings surrounding the episode.

Learn from it.

Seek to identify the lessons inherent in the experience.

Say thanks.

Express gratitude for the experience, as it can and will bring insight, if you allow it.
