We make mistakes in our life, we all do. And at a certain point in life, when we realize that mistake, we regret it. Some regrets seem to be worth the pain and some mistakes are worth repetition. But in reality, mistakes are called mistakes because they are not supposed to be repeated. The word regret represents resentment, something that is not supposed to be done again and again.
What is the use of putting a plant, in a dark corner and keeping it devoid of the sunlight? It shall only sulk and die away. So shall the person, die in guilt and gloom, of the mistake.
Not everyone has everything is life. The concept of imperfection is created on the basis of lacking. And the way imperfect people strive for attaining perfection is a marvelous process. It is necessary to hope for certain things in life. But to expect that you shall receive that thing, is one step beyond optimism. It is better off to work hard, in order to get the things you want. It seems like an old school thought, hard work and it’s reward. But it works, hence the lesson is preached. If it were just another cock and bull story, people would discard it from the conventional norms.
But then, another point of concern is, the state of rejection from the struggle. You dreamed and tried to get something in life, but did not achieve it.
Even now, shall thou not mourn?
Mourning will not bring the thing to you. If mourning was the solution, than many whiners would easily be the most successful people in the world.
Don’t consider a crying person, weak. He has been strong for too long.
The tears are a source of self consolation, at certain times. At other times, they are a permanent symbol of failure and refusal to proceed on, with other options of life.
If you are unfortunate enough to not be able to get something after several attempts, then letting go is a better option. You should utilize that energy somewhere else, and get a better reward. This is only our stubbornness that we continuously run after something, which is never meant to be ours. Maybe that thing isn’t supposed to be a part of our life? Remember, everyone has their own faith that they may label as faith or religion, I am not intervening anyone’s beliefs.
In the situation of regression and failure, it is much better to move on. Life is a constant process of progressing, forcing the process to become static and complaining about moving on, will only make things more complicated. You are the one of the greatest factors that can make or break you. So, wouldn’t it be better to make yourself, rather than break yourself?
