Grownups always have a space their regrets, things that were dreams a few years back turn into the biggest regrets of your life. It’s not bad to have your share of regrets but make sure you never let them make more space. You regrets keep you human by making your realize the fact that a few things are either out of your control or you did not give your best shot. Let us have a look at few daily life acts that always leave you with a feeling of regret.
Work for the sake of work
We all are born with things that we are passionate about and the biggest regret is to work for the sake of getting a salary. No doubt, your need to pay your bills and feed your family, but if a job keeps killing the zeal and desire to do something than you are better off without it. Each time you are fired or quit a job that you never really liked, you are left with a scar on your soul. The feelings are baseless but it keeps making you feel inferior inside.
Not spending time with loved ones
Every time you play with your kids or share a laugh with your parents, you get energies even more. This positive energy strengthens you to carry on in life. You always regret the moment you spend attending a boring meeting when you have a chance to go on a picnic with loving family. Nothing can compare the love and admiration of your family.
Making decisions under the influence of a fear
Fear never ever let you make decisions that need to be made to live a desired life. There is really no fun in working at an office, which does not offer you the work of your own interest. However, the mere idea of leaving the job fills your mind with fear, fear how you would pay up your bills next month. Look at the bigger picture; you can’t let one fear take away all your chance to be happy and successful. Imagine the happiness you can have after having a job of your own interest, which can even secure the future of your family.
No time to pursue the passion
Life would be a waste if you were not able to pursue your passion. Things that make you feel alive should be on top of your priority list. However, for most it comes last. Life is meaningless if you waste in making other people happy or living your life their way. Time may never give you a chance to follow your passion, so never let a single day pass by without spending at least half an hour doing the things that you love to do the most.
Not your idea of life
Life that always revolves around others can never give you the happiness. It may prove to be the biggest regret of your life. Your time is now, start living life your way, as you can’t possibly satisfy everyone around you.
Life is short; you should make more space for your dreams rather than regrets. As the regrets of your life increase, you start feeling like a failure, which adds up regret to your list.
