Dealing with regret

Tanya Curtis, Senior Behaviour Specialist and founding director of FABIC Behaviour Specialist Centre, explains that regret is looking back at past moments and movements and wishing they hadn’t happened. And that can be words spoken, thoughts not expressed, physical acts as well as intentions.

Tanya goes on to say that regret and shame do not lead anywhere; what has happened cannot be undone and rather than staying stuck in the past and going into self-loathing and anxiousness, it is more self-supportive and much healthier to embrace the learning opportunity on offer and focus on what we can learn from past mistakes and do things differently when the opportunity comes around again.

And thus, the only mistake is a mistake we don’t learn from. It is as simple as that.
