We all have them. Small ones. Large ones. Regrets that are recent and regrets from long ago.

They may be regrets about something we did or about something we didn’t do. Or it could be a regret about a failure.

Some regrets linger. They sting. They can put barriers in our way or cloud our judgement or make us second guess ourselves and what we’re doing.

But maybe those regrets aren’t merely reminders or reproaches or barriers. Maybe they linger to help drive us forward, to push us to try to better ourselves, to influence us to change and to grow.
