How To Get Over Regret

Reader's question: Hi  Jonathan! How do you get over regret about missing a FABULOUS job opportunity I missed for "fear" and family commitments??? THANK YOU.

My answer:

Thank  you for writing.  Regret is, indeed, a most troubling emotion. To overcome regret, focus on these three steps...

1. Forgive yourself.

2. Look forward, rather than back.

3. Be grateful for what you have, rather than regretting what you don’t have.

May the world be kind to you, and may your own thoughts be gentle upon yourself.
