Pattern of Regret

I sometimes feel trapped in memories of critical points in my life, where I keep thinking what if I acted differently at that time, what would have happened, where would I be today. I know they’re pointless and tiring, but I can’t help myself, and I keep falling in this pattern of regret, whenever I look at pictures or objects from my past.

  1. “There may be some wrongs we can never fully right. If we are painstaking about this phase in our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things, and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away…We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.” That is a passage out of the Big Book of AA that my husband is a member of. I go to open speaker meetings with him. It is more a spiritual program of recovery than a treatment plan for the alcoholic, but I have learned to apply their principles to my everyday life. May the God of your understanding grant you peace.
